Relaxing/ Hypnotic...




Recently, I was saddened to learn of the passing of Bobby Womack...

His voice and music were a great influence to me,
when I was starting out as a singer...

He wrote and sang so many beautiful tunes,
but his 1976 hit tune "Daylight", has special meaning to me.

It was on the playlist of my first band "The Watkins Family"...

Thank you, Bobby, for sharing your talent, and beautiful voice...

Your music will live on, in my heart and memory...

My gig at Harbor Light, with Tomoya Hara,
went very well.

The master and all the staff were very hospitable,
I felt very welcomed...

A big thank-you, to all my dear friends, new and old,
who came out to support me;
it made for a very fun Summer Solstice evening!

Takahatafudo Flea Market

Temple Wings




Yesterday, I went to the monthly flea-market, at Takahatafudo Temple.
My dear friend, and fellow flea-market enthusiast Kristy, invited/ reminded me of this event.

It was a very sunny, warm day, and our small group went off in different directions...

I enjoy this flea market;
with its twists and turns all around the temple grounds,
with all sorts of treasures to look over...

But the afternoon heat had me climbing to higher, more shadier grounds...

The wafting scent of inscense, traveling on the hillside breeze,
through branches of Japanese maple,
helped to make the heat manageable...

Variations on Blue




At the market, I bought a Labradorite pendant.

it's gorgeous earthy green, with flecks of blue blazing in the hot sun, caught my attention...

The colors of it, matched the day...

It's about 2cm (a little over an inch) in size,
and the seller was kind enough to give me a discount, and attach a bail to it,
so it's ready to wear...

Today was my Etegami group session...

It was good to see everyone, but it was a hot day.

Just as we were finishing, it turned dark and we got hail-stones...

Listening...

At the mastering session
@ KING RECORDS, Tokyo, Japan
6-4-2014




My new CD, a duo with 原 とも也 Tomoya Hara,
was mastered yesterday.

Many thanks to Tomoya,
and his friend; studio-guitarist Okubo-san,
and to our top-notch mastering engineer;
Shibusawa-san, at KING RECORDS...

And, of course, my #1 fan and sponsor, Kenji Tsuboi...

Over the years, I've had many professional situations,
played with many different musicians, here in Japan.

I've done live-house dates, hotels, private parties, cruises, XMAS shows, tours across Japan,
with the late, great George Kawaguchi and the NEW BIG 4 + 1,
I've done tv commercials, radio appearances, sang jingles,
and recorded 2 CD's;
my first CD; "How About You?", with The Akio Ueda Jazz Quintet.

I appeared at Orchard Hall, in Shibuya, as "the girl singer"
with Nobuo Hara & His Sharps & Flats Orchestra,
and later also recorded as a guest for his CD "That's Big Band"...


But this was a first, for me :

To sit in "the chair" and listen from the most excellent power speakers,
my song choices and vocals,
together with Tomoya's fabulous guitar-work,
after the mastering process...



I've waited a long time, for this!









Till Next Time...
