About the Album

About the album: Dialogue is my first jazz composition studio album, which consists of ten original compositions of mine written for vibraphone, piano/keyboards, acoustic bass/electric bass and drums. Each piece in this album is based on my personal reflections on various subjects as well as my Japanese cultural background and heritage. The album title "Dialogue" portrays my sincere hope to connect with you on a deeper level through these ten musical pieces. I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to each of you for taking time to listen to this album. About the track: As a native of Fukushima, Japan’s tragic 2011 earthquake/tsunami as well as The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plants meltdown struck me deeply in a personal level. Since then, many people in Fukushima lost their hometowns, and they have been continuously struggling with the uncertain health impact to the radiation exposure from the nuclear reactors that have long ways to be decommissioned. With this piece, I would like to continue raising awareness of difficulties Fukushima still has been facing. All things in this world are impermanent, and I truly hope someday the situations there will be improved.
