The below recording is of a live trio performance in 2009, featuring the veteran musician Shinji Ishihara on tenor sax, with Nobuyuki Mizuoka on piano and Shigenobu Kikuta on wood bass. The venue where the event took place was located just a few blocks away from the train station, an easy walk on quiet, residential back streets, at a two-story home where much of the first floor had been converted into a cozy café. On this day the place was chock-full with guests, including the pianist’s mother — the experience was rather special. 🎶
