Few days away!: “Yuming Things” at the Triad

Hello, everyone! How was the snow in your area? Before taking about “Yuming Things,” I have my regular gig on Monday, March 1 at NB Lounge. Toru, my partner on Thursdays, will play for me (I know! Tomorrow isn’t Thursday, but he will be there! FYI, almost all Mondays in March, he will be there with me at the Lounge in addition to his regular Thursdays – excited? Yes!!)

As usual, the show starts at 7:30PM and runs until 11PM, 3 sets of music, with no cover/minimum. We are looking forward to seeing you.

Now, let’s talk’bout “YUMING THINGS,” a special event on Wednesday, March 3 at the Triad Theater. The last time I had this sort of collaborative event was 7 years ago, and it was also Spring event (’hinamatsuri’) with 2 other singers. In that event, we sang from jazz repertoires. Now, this event is a bit different because the materials consist of Japanese songs chosen from Yumi Matsutoya Songbook. If you are curious who she is, please google her or visit WiKi.

In this show, three wonderful vocalists, Nabuko Kiryu, Erika Matsuo, and Akemi Yamada will join me and share the stage with Toru Dodo (piano), Satoshi Inoue (guitar) and Noriko Ueda (bass). For each of our bio and website link, please visit www.jjazznewyork.com.

Each vocalist sings 4 selections from Yumi Matsutoya Songbook. As we are all different, the selections are also uniquely reflecting each personality. I am very excited to see how each song will be presented. (And I just came home from the rehearsal and it went really well. The band was awesome!)

皆さん、こんばんわ。
明日の月曜日のラウンジは、なんと、な、なんと!
(って、そこまで強調しなくても???)、
木曜日に毎週お世話になっている百々さんなのです。
もっと言ってしまうと、3月の月曜のラウンジ、
ほとんど百々さんなんです!!らん、らん♪
(ちなみに、18日の木曜と、22日の月曜は智さん♪)
みなさん、遊びに来て下さいませ。

さて本題。

いよいよ、三日後に迫りました”YUMING THINGS”ですが、
今日、バンドリハーサルをやってきました。
かなり面白いことになりそうです。
まず、選曲からして4人それぞれの持ち味がよく出ているというか、
個性がここまでクッキリ出ているというのは
まず面白いですし、この選んだ曲が、バランス良く、ここまで
並んだというのも、また面白いというか、なんというか。
それぞれが4曲選んでいるのですが、
どれも正に、なぶこ〜、えりか〜、あけみ〜、まみこ〜、
っていう印がしっかり付いているというか(笑)。
ユーミンの曲を知らない人でも、楽しめますし、
知っている人は、また違った角度で楽しめると思います。
皆様、是非、天気など気にせずに、水曜日の夜はトライアドで
大人のひな祭り、お楽しみ下さい:)
