■INTERVIEW & PICK UP ARTIST
Tamaya Honda 3DAYS 2018

We are having the annual Tamaya Honda 3DAYS with hot and boisterous three concerts. The opening day will feature a special concert of my group TAMAXILLE that made a CD debut from Pit Inn Music label last October. As our special guest, we will have Kei Akagi who was the only Japanese jazz artist who has co-performed with Miles Davis ever, to present various Miles covers from the early tunes from 1969 to Amandla. Also, the rare meeting of Kei Akagi and young up-and-coming musicians is a must-see!

On the second day, I will play with Otomo Yoshihide after such a long time. Otomo has been flying high in the recent years, but I remember that it was in the 1980's when I experienced his concert for the first time in the daytime show at Aketa's Club. As a 15-year old boy at the time, I could not understand what Otomo was doing at all then. :)? But the first big concert I had for my first 3DAYS event at the Pit Inn was a session with Otomo, when I challenged a freestyle performance for the first time. (I remember that Mr. Suzuki, the manager of Pit Inn, took very good care of me on that day. I sincerely hope that he will be able to come back to the club as soon as possible after recovering his health!) It was almost ten years ago. With the same bassist Nasuno who also played with me ten years ago, we three will pursue the high peak in a rocking freestyle. I would like to see where we could reach with the help of the two great musicians without wanting a result!

On the last day, I will play with my late father and pianist Takehiro Honda tribute band, perhaps for the second time at the Pit Inn. To commemorate the 13th anniversary of my father's death, we will play with our thoughts of respect and gratitude for him. With my father's closet collaborators Kosuke Mine, Miyuki Moriya, Shinji Hashimoto, Fumio Itabashi and Yasushi Yoneki who are all jazz masters of today's Japanese jazz scene, we are planning to play my father's originals tunes and some other songs from the time of Native Sun. And the happiest news is that our concert of the day will be live recorded for a CD thanks to the Pit Inn!? Hooray!

So, all the three days will be filled with joy and excitement. I will keep my 50 years old body going to keep up with these amazing musicians, and hope to share this special 3DAYS with as many people as possible. Please come to see us!
