Still Quarantine-ing --- enjoy G.G.concert and film

Posted on May 27, 2020 at 7:35 PM

G.G. was featured in a short documentary film directed/produced by Mr. Yuta Yamaguchi, and debuted at screening of SXSW 2017. Right after SXSW, this film was screened in Yokohama Japan when we toured in Japan 2017 spring, big thanks for Mr. Koichiro Azami, and everyone who supported us to make it happened. Then, I heard this film went around to film festivals. So this film has not been publicly posted anywhere yet!

Special thanks to Jasga Austin Ms. Kako Ito who kindly produced our CD release concert in Austin 2016!

Happy New Year 2017

Posted on January 30, 2017 at 10:00 PM

I hope everything would be settled OK. It is really not so happy new year 2017 so far, I am afraid of what is going on in US under new president right now. I hope we can stay together with compassion, love, and peace whatever happens on us internationally. 


Good news is G.G. will go to Japan all 3 of us together this time in this spring!! Please keep open Friday April 21!! We are going to perform at Motion Blue Yokohama with special guest Ryu Miho.

G.G. 2/3 Japan tour was big success!

Posted on May 23, 2016 at 11:00 AM

I came back from Japan!!

I had a couple of gigs with Takana Miyamoto(p) and Kenji Shimada(b), so we called it G.G. 2/3!!

And I reunited with my PTA band which was based on my son's elementaly school PTA board members back in 2006-2008 during my service as a vice PTA president. 

Then, I participated to 60th anniversary concert of Waseda Univ. High Society Orchestra! I reunited many friends in college big band in Tokyo, met older and younger alumnis, about 160 musicians shared stage, in 9 big bands! It was something.

Thank you so much!!

Thank you so much for coming down to G.G.'s mini tour in Austin!

We had a big fun here in Austin, people in Austin is so nice, started from people of JASGA, all audiences, and musician friends who came down, sitting in, made friends with G.G.!

Thank you sooooo much.

G.G. is coming to Japan 4/30-5/6 for mini tour, but this time we have Kenji Shimada for bass since Noriko Ueda can't go to Japan.
