Today , I went to Mobius Yotsuya for jam session. One of the host members Kazui invited me . I have met him only once but he was very impressive because of his cool bass playing. I realized soon that he loves Marcus Miller from his phrase. ; )
He is Kenji “Jino” Hino’s disciple . I was really looking forward to seeing Jino, too.（He is also the host member.）
It’s been about 1 year since I took his lesson in Ikebukuro . I’m a big fan of his fantastic groove.
When I arrived there , it was already full of people and the session was a blast!!
Today I had a rehearsal with Gt&Vo Shoka Okubo / Dr Makotomo Sonohara / Gt&Vo Chihana.
It’s been a long time to see Shoka and Makotomo!!! I really missed them, so I was going bananas. Shaka Okubo Blues Project (Shoka+Makotomo+Juna)will have a concert featuring Chihana at Ginza Hakuhinkann for Yuya Uchida New Year World Rock Festival .
We’ll perform three songs together . I need to consider which costume I will wear because my body size probably changed…I’m “growing up”…. ; (
After the rehearsal, I was a session host with a guitar player Naoto Saito and a drummer Yuto Sasaoka at Okachimahi Jam Session .
Many musicians came there , thanks a million !
I played the drums only a song,too….. lol
It was terrible… I realized that I don’t have a sense of drumming….lol
These days I was usually alone. I kind of like it but today I really enjoyed being with people and laughing well.
I feel happy that I can work as a musician even though I hadn’t been in Japan for several months .
