"I spent most of my childhood in Chicago and New York City. I started music after I returned to Japan.
I came back to Japan from the U.S. when I was 12, and the differences of values between the two cultures are the basis of my thoughts.
In my American classroom, there were African, Korean, Chinese, Dutch, Israeli... children with different backgrounds. It was a powerful environment. I thought I saw an ideal society(but not everything).
I like being in a place where there are different sense of values, because it's boring if we were all alike.
I wish I could take away many borders like sex, age, nationality, etc!
This is my first live DVD&CD released in 2003.
Musicians are Akira Sotoyama(dr.), Hiroki Mizutani(bass), Tsuneo Imahori(guit.), Osamu Matsumoto(tb.), Naruyoshi Kikuchi(sax) and Riyu Konaka(vo.&key.).
