“Pamela MacCarthy with The Ken Simon Quartet”
Bright Brown, Nakano

Autumn evenings,
experiencing music!
This is October…

© 2015 Pamela MacCarthy








Last night, I went to see my friend Ken Simon,
here in Tokyo, on a mini-tour, from NYC.



My old friend Hiroshi Yamamoto joined me to go see Ken and the guys
at Bright Brown, in Nakano…



The Ken Simon Quartet :

Ken Simon - tenor and soprano saxes, flute
Kazuhide Motooka - piano
Alan Gleason - bass
Tatsuya Nakamura - drums




The show was wonderful.

It was great to see Ken again, as well as Alan G., on bass
and Motooka-san on piano.

I played with Kazuhide Motooka long ago...
It was good to hear him play again!

It was my first time to meet drummer Tatsuya Nakamura,
his playing added a fiery dynamic to this well-balanced unit!

Ken was in great form, effortlessly changing instruments
with each tune selection...

A diverse roster of tunes it was, also.

My contribution: ”Autumn Leaves…”

“P-Mac, Ridin’ The Train Home…”




It was an enchanted night, with Autumn’s chill in the air,
watching the street-fashion of people adapting to the weather,
seeing old friends once again,
and enjoying Live Jazz!









Till Next Time...

The Ken Simon Quartet :

Ken Simon - tenor and soprano saxes, flute

I may sit in, for a tune or two…

See you there!

A bike ride is theraputic, in these conditions;
the light of dusk gives everything an appearance of being

“Pensive”



Moths and butterflies
Cut rice, hung out in the sun…
This is October…

I was out doing my healthcheck activities, today…

A lot of waiting, and waiting some more…

Then, I was sprung, to walk in the cool, cloudy day…

These were some things that caught my eye…
