It should be a remarkable experience for Kazumi Watanabe to perform with Jaco at Jaco Pastorius “WORD OF MOUTH” band tour in 1983. In fact he said “I have learned a lot of valuable issues in this tour”.
9 days Japan tour from May 10, 1983 to May 22, 1983.
Jaco Pastorius (b), Ron Tooley (tp), Alex Foster (sax), Dermar Brown (key), Don Alias (perc),Othello Molineaux (steel drum), Kenwood Denard (ds) and Kazumi Watanabe (g)
He have covered very beautiful tune, THREE VIEWS OF A SECRET twice in his album.
- GUITAR RENAISSANCEⅡ (2005)
2. TOKYO WANDERER (2017) with Ai Okumura strings
Probably he was reflecting Jaco’s word, “Hey Kazumi, you should put in more space in the music !!”, during Kazumi’s play of this beautiful tune !!.
