"Weep You No More Sad Fountains"



Kate Winslet (Marianne Dashwood)
Alan Rickman (Colonel Brandon)

from

“Sense and Sensibility”




Of all his many roles, this one was my favorite…

He was such a brilliant actor, who played so many roles, so well-
But his gentleness as Colonel Brandon, I’ll always remember…

“ Purple and Gold”

Black Ink, Watercolor

On Washi Postcard




I painted these at home, today.



Like the rest of the world,
I was shocked, saddened and heartbroken at the news of David Bowie’s passing…

His genius moved me from the start, from Hunky Dory to Blackstar...

When I recorded my first CD, with The Akio Ueda Jazz Quintet in 1998,
I did “Wild Is The Wind” in respect to his version, I was so inspired by it…

The man had style, right to the end…

Carlos Alomar - rhythm guitar
Earl Slick - lead guitar
George Murray - bass

My birthday celebration/Live Jazz show,
was a total success!

Me and The Trio, were in great form!

It was my first time to work with Shingo Y. on drums,
he was fabulous, as was Aoki-san, and Alan G...

It was a great fit!

To all my long-time fans and friends,
and newer ones, thank you so much, for all the love;
and coming out to support me!

My son Michio was there,
it was a really great night...

At the end of the night, with Aoki-san’s help on piano,
everyone in the audience started singing “Happy Birthday” to me!
