THREE VIEWS OF A SECRET
Oh, it is a great pity that we have no chance to listen to this beautiful and noble tune from directly, Jaco Pastrious !!
However, still there are many successors who give us such a chance.
Takeshi Shibuya （渋谷毅）is the one from Japan.
He got his orchestra, and THREE VIEWS OF A SECRET is one of his regular tune. Also he made it a rule to play at end of year special live performance at Shinjuku Pit Inn.
So do I.
Last year, due to COVID19, it was not a all night performance, however, usually it was. After end of the all performances, I went back home under the freezing wind. In fact it was nothing. I could enjoy to go there to listen to Shibuya-san’s THREE VIEWS OF A SECRET !!
Takeshi Shibuya (p) orchestra;
Koichi Matsukaze (sax), Kosuke Mine (sax),Kenta Tsugami (sax), Eichi Hayashi (sax), Osamu Matsumoto (tb), Akihiro Ishiwata (g), Katsumasa kamimura (b), Akira Sotoyama (ds)
As for my individual preference, I like Kosuke Mine very much, who is much stable and powerful. In fact one of active legend !!
Then, why important at the end of year ??
Maybe because, I think, anybody has at least 3 secrets, and can disclose them internally at the end of year !! Then the next day we can have fresh new year !!!
Then, the next, what do you think of Jaco’s secrets ??
Original THREE VIEWS OF A SECRET was released in NIGHT PASSAGE (1980), then, the next release is in his group, WORD OF MOUTH (1981).
What was his passion inside when he made THREE VIEWS OF A SECRET ??
