Had a good gig this past Saturday. Played with singer, Takako at the Bric Montrose in La Crescenta, the first time playing with her. Takako is really good singer. That night included a really good band which consisted of Atsuki Inoue on drums, who I hadn't played with in a couple of months, and a Bill Frisell'ish guitar player named Kata, who I really dug. We played some jazz standards and a few Japanese songs like, Sukiyaki Song and Aka Tombo. The band came together well, especially since we hadn't rehearsed or played together before that night.
