It was a late-night show of Naruyoshi Kikuchi's 'Modern Jazz Dicotheque' when I played live at the Shinjuku Pit Inn. At that night, the jazz venue Pit Inn has turned into a nightclub, and I remember that I was exalted by the overwhelming phenomenon that was happening there like a miracle. My second experience at the Pit Inn was the time when I had a concert with my own band. I still remember that I had goose bumps because the amount of heat in the audience was so intense. It almost felt like a hot music festival or something.
It was definitely a magic of the Pit Inn, with no doubt.
I have been to the Pit Inn for several times as one of the audience, and always feel that there is something 'very special' that exists only in the air of the Pit Inn. This time, I am deeply grateful to the Pit Inn for letting me have my first 5 DAYS event here. Musicians who are joining me during the 5 days are all fantastic. They are so gorgeous that perhaps I am the one who is looking forward to the concerts more than anyone else. We will present different music on each day, to make you experience new worlds on each night.
I will make the Pit Inn magic happen for the five days, so I hope you could come to join us to experience the moments. It would be wonderful if we can leave something very special in your hearts. Looking forward to seeing you there!
