So last year in September my family and I relocated from Honolulu, HI to Osaka, Japan and that’s why it’s taken me a while to post another blog. Sorry for the delay and thanks for taking the time to read this one!
Since my first trip to Japan to perform at the Imperial Hotel Jazz Festival in 2009, I have felt a longing to return and live here. Now that we have made the move, we are pleased with the quality of life, healthcare, cost-of-living and most of the the music scene.
Below are gig posters highlighting the wonderfully gifted musicians I have the honor of performing with on a regular basis. Each day, I feel incredibly grateful that the Kansai (Osaka, Kobe and Kyoto) music scene (And recently Hiroshima scene) have welcomed me with open arms and invited me to me be a part of the rich musical tapestry of this great country.
