Kang Ayu Piano Trio

 

 

 

Hey guys!! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!

 

Today I had a solo show of Ayu Kang Trio at Yotsuya Moebius.

We all are the member of TOKYO BRASS STYLE . So this project is called ” Brass Style side project ” but I’m pretty sure Ayu Kang is a great pianist / keyboardist and the style is totally different with TOKYO BRASS STYLE. Even you don’t know TBS you will be able to  enjoy this performance .

Today we have a guest sax player Misaki Yamoto !

She is so cool and gave us some new essence ; ) !

We played Kan-chan’s original songs and also cover songs.

At the encore , Kan-chan played by herself (I and Mimi were just listening to it ).  The song named ALONE had a dramatic melody and I really loved it !!

I’m so happy to be involved in her trio band . Thanks .

 

 

see ya!!!

Came back to Japan

 

 

 

Hey guys !! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita ! !

 

I came back to Japan this morning !! And till midday I had no schedule so finally went to see a doctor .

I’d been feeling painful on my arms for over three months.  This summer I was working on too many skilled songs .(Still there are some songs that I can’t handle yet tho ) Of course it needs a lot of practice, and I did it again and again . And fast anyway .. And I’m not used to playing fast , probably I was so lazy.  And suddenly I started to work on it , my arms  were nervous . That must be the reason . ( It’s  embarrassing  because I always tell my students to get the hands relaxed . lol  I’m the person who needs to be relaxed .)

Plus I didn’t really have time to rest .. I think I had full day off only 3days in 3 months . I know I work too hard but this is because I wanted to make my own album . And I’m proud that  I did  best on it  .

 

The doctor said it takes about a half year to heal  . But his job is make it shorter and he is specialist of this problem according to the internet .

Gave me the tape and taught me some exercise for the pain, and told me somethings I should care through daily habit .

Anyway , seems like I should take rest a little more ..  I’m so afraid of my future .

I just gotta fix it  ; )

 

See ya!

Today I had a funky jazz live at Hiyoshi Wonder Wall!

 

Member

Bass : Juna Serita

Drums : Emi Yonekubo

Flute : Erisa Ogawa

Piano :Dennis Lambert

It was my first  time to Dennis and Erisa! Thanks for having me .

We each brought some songs we want to play .  I and Emi brought some session standard songs and Dennis and Erisa brought their original songs too ; )

(Actually I was gonna bring my instrumental original songs too but I thought the melody should be too complicated to play for the first time ; ( )

Erisa plays the beat box and the sax at a time!!!  I don’t know whether  it’s common among flute players  or not but at least I had never seen like that person in my life .  Wow !! She is bad ass !!!

And It’s been a while since I’ve played with Emi !!  When we started play some songs , I realized how much I was missing it .

My favorite percussionist Winter came down as audience and he sat in at the 2nd stage !! Yey ; )

Thanks for coming everyone !!  See ya!!

Rehab

 

 

 

 

 

Hey guys!! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!

 

Day after tomorrow I’m gonna go to London for Rie a.k.a.Suzaku’s performance !

Well, I haven’t had chances to speak in English for a while and got worried about my English level for tour .  So I took a lesson today.

There are many poses I can tell ; (   Until March , I lived in a far place from central Tokyo. That’s why I always needed to kill the time like on a train , between works , anytime .  Then I always read English article , watched Netflix , some news , and talked to my language partner  everyday , etc…  Which means English study was just my routine . I even didn’t think I’d been studying hard, but now I can say I did .

Now I live in middle of Tokyo . Then I don’t need to kill my time and I can go back home once whenever if I want to.  Plus when I ‘m at home, I prioritize the other things like playing the bass guitar , singing , song writing etc…

Then my time for English study has gone. lol   Just forgot.  Now I feel kinda shy to speak English ….

 

I really gotta catch up ….

 

 

See ya!!

Recording day

 

 

 

Hey guys!! I’m  a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!

 

Today I had a recording for my solo album !!

We recored horns and backing vocals .

This is horn ladies  . Everyone often play with me  ; )

from the left side on the photo, Harumo / Shiori / Chihiro.

I didn’t mean it but they said the horn lines I made is kinda complicated and difficult . but they did great . I really appreciate and can’t believe the sound made by all women . ! I’m so proud of them.

 

And after that , I had backing vocal recording.

I asked two vocalists to sing .

He is Walter Jackson , one day we worked together as backup musicians for an  female singer song writer .

Then I got inspired a lot by his voice .  Sounded like he can handle EVERYTHING.  And at the recording , I order many things but he did everything very easily . Fantastic guy .

 

And another vocalist , Judy !!

Actually now she is my vocal coach. As you know my vocal was terrible but getting better day by day because of her .

I asked her many runs and it was incredible . She sang differently each time and that was variety !!

And I do love her warm voice .

They made my  songs much greater . I’m so  grateful  to have them on my album , in my life.

Anyway , can’t to wait to hear the result !!!!

 

 

See ya!!!

Double bass

 

 

 

Hey guys !! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita !

 

You know … I bought a double bass last month but I’ve been stuck on the other projects , so I  couldn’t touch at all .

And yesterday I finally cleaned up my room , so I opened it .

Wow that looks much bigger than I thought …

My first target is playing the double bass every morning . Get it into my routine.

And hopefully I wanna play it in public in this year ; )

 

See ya!!

 

 

 

Juna Serita Recording 3

 

 

 

 

Hey guys!! I’m  a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!

 

Today finally double bass came my home !!

It’s actually much bigger than I expected ! lol

But I’m so excited to play it !!

Now I’m stuck on somethings , but after I’ve done them I’ll play . Can’t wait to start my double bass career ; ) !

 

And afternoon  I had a recording of my vocal !

There are many things I got noticed . I know vocal is my weak point …. but I wanna sing my original songs by myself because it’s my expression of feelings. That’s why I’m trying to be good….

Anyway I really appreciate to the engineer Kato-san.

I asked some people to do vocal direction for me at the recording but nobody is available . I should have asked earlier .  I just tried my best and Kato-san gave me many advices  . How great he is.

I’m just excited to see how it goes …

See ya!!

My new gear ….

 

 

 

 

 

Hey guys !! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita !!

 

This is my new gear ……. !!!!!!!!

I totally had no idea that I buy a double bass today. lol

But this morning a bass player told me there is a cheeper double bass at the shop called TAKASAKI now.  It’s  about 800 US dollars .

So…. I thought if I lose this chance , I won’t be able to buy a doubt bass for 2 or 3 years again….(I already lost the chance 3 years ago .)   Yes,,, it must be the timing….

This is Takasaki san. The boss of the shop . He gave me a lot of advice .

If you want to buy double bass, you should buy here because the maintenance will be free. So helpful , and kind.

I can’t bring it to home yet but it’s coming at the end of month ; ) I’m soooooo excited !!!

 

 

 

 

 

And at night , I had a performance at Hilton Hotel Tokyo.

 

Today’s member

sax & vocal : Marcus Pittman

bass guitar : Juna Serita

keyboard : Takuma Ota

We played mostly soul , r&b tunes.

The last stage, the bar was packed .

The good thing of playing here is I can have buffet ; ) !

yey yey !! I can be healthier !!

 

See ya!!!!

Tetsuo Sakurai solo sho @ Kanazawa ash

 

 

 

 

Hey guys! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!

 

Today the interview of my hometown gig is appeared on  newspaper of Hokuriku Chunichi Shimbun ,

I appreciate  for their supporting . Thanks!!

If you take newspaper , please check it out ; ) !

 

 

 

And in the evening , I had performance at Tetsuo Sakurai (ex CASIOPEA) ‘s show as a guest musician

He is my bass master . I tool his lessons  for 4 years .

I learned not only how to play the bass guitar from him , but also many things .

Like how to walk , how to groove , how to  feel the rhythm , how necessary English is , how professional musicians do , etc…

After he performed alone , he played with another guest musician called Ken Asada .

Ken-san is also bass guitar player , and also my master !! lol

It’s kinda complicated . I was born and grown up in Ishikawa prefecture and I was here till graduation of high school . I took Ken-san’s bass lesson several times before the entrance  exam of music university .

After their performance , I and Tetsuo Sakurai performed together without backing track .  Only two bass guitars .

We played I WISH by Stevie Wonder.  We both love his songs . It was  such  a great moment .

 

And after our performance , we all played together !  From the left side on the pic, Juna  / Tetsuo / Ken .

We played Spain by Chick Corea with three bass guitars .

It was unique ! Lol

Someone play the bass line , someone play the cord , someone play the melody or solo etc …

I’m happy to play with my two bass master at a same time ! Lol

 

Today’s my costume is Tetsuo Sakurai’s original T-shirts !

It’s XS ; )   So cute , isn’t it ; ) ?

 

See ya !!!!!
