It was on Sep.4th, 2022, at Kichijoji, TOKYO.
There were significant performance by;
Chie Nishimura (vo)
Ryoji Orihara (fretless b)
Mei Inoue (g)
Tamaya Honda (ds)
Akiko Nakayama (live painting, special guest)
Chie Nishimura is an authentic jazz vocalist, rather traditional.
However, here, she never use words, but only her VOICE to present her emotion with overflowing LOVE.
She said she realized that it was the necessary method, even though she was afraid it was surprising to audiences. Of course we fully received her emotion through enthusiastic expression, with unbelievable impression.
The total concept is mainly from Ryoji Orihara. Album design is also meaningful. It is Shinjuku, where usually a lot of people are walking around. However, during heavy trouble by COVID 19, it was silent! Oh my god !! Was it VIRTUAL SILENCE ??
In the society, unexpectedly, there is a trouble sometimes, in fact. However, therefore, we need to stand up again to face ahead. Music could be sometimes being supportive.
We receive Chie Nishimura’s warm heart to try to be supportive with a lot of LOVE.
For reference, there were several handicapped person also enjoying the concert together. All of us saw Chie Nishimura’s pure eyes directed to them.
Quite unfortunately Kichijoji Theater is not enough wide. Much, much more people wanted to join that performance, but not possible at that time.
We are happy to see they are ready to go on that project continuously, or more progressed!!.
See anybody again !!
