Noriko Jazz Quartet has done our funk-jazz recording session!! So thankful for an awesome studio sound system and our amazing sound engineer who provided us an great expertise and generous incredible support. It could be challenging to put together all musical artwork in the moments with a limited time, but and then, star witnessing some amazing creations we’ve never expected, owning arrangements, being in the moment, brain storming, putting in our soul into it. It was also such a pretty moment chatting about what music effects could offer for some healing process of human being, such as for Alzheimer’s, dementia, depression, and even concussion, etc… those discussion helped us do self grounding after the hectic focused recording session time. so grateful what we have, huge appreciation to such a wonderful beautiful talented team!!

It was a very nostalgic moment taking this photo shooting with this kimono, called ” Kurotomesode “, that is a keepsakes from my mother, who loved singing some of jazz music, loved wearing Kimono, laughed together, always supported my journey whatever things made me happy.
It’s so grateful to be in a meeting place for people of different ethnic groups, and a city where musicians had the opportunity to play together, learn from each other, and blend all of these elements, creating a new art forms…
Today, jazz is played and listened to by people of all cultures and ethnicities and includes musical elements and styles from all over the world; jazz has gone from being America’s music to being the world’s music.
