I started hula-hooping for muscle training while waiting for the end of the Corona pandemic. I’m sure many of you may have tried it as a child, but in my girlhood, I gave up after one or two times because my eyes would spin. This time I got used to it in three days, so I came up with an interesting game of playing the saxophone while spinning the hula hoop. The gradual improvement was so fun that I couldn’t stop playing. The hula-hoop saxophone stage might be coming soon!?
Well, I would like to thank you for giving me the opportunity to play at Shinjuku PIT INN 3DAYS. We’ve put together a special program for this event and we’re looking forward to seeing you there.
On the first day, we will have our regular trio. Please enjoy the new phase of our original music played by the hard-bitten members of the band.
On the second day, we will present ‘Plays Eric Dolphy’. I love Eric Dolphy’s single-minded way of life and his warm, lustrous tone. The sounds of the members appeared in my mind the moment I thought of this project. Since it is a cordless ensemble, I will try to create unique arrangements.
On the third day, we will present ‘Plays Bjork’. I wondered if I could convey the essence of her voice and lyrics on the saxophone successfully. She is one of the few artists whose voice and lyrics can penetrate the forbidden realm of the listener’s mind. We will be traveling through unexplored territory with members who are mature enough for the challenge.
