Tutomu Okada quartet at Toyama
I went to listen to the concert of quartet leaded by Bass player, Tsutomu Okada at Jazz club called "Jazz Workshop" in Toyama. It was really enjoyable gig and I felt their love for the music and big respect between the musicians from their playing. Hiroshi Murakami, who plays drums on this group, told me he's known saxophonist, Kosuke Mine for more than forty years. Wow! I can not imagine how does it feel to play with same person for over forty years. I'm sure it would be really exciting musical experiment. pictures are me and Mr. Murakami and great dog aged 20(!), Gon.
