Jazz can bring such warmth and calm to one's soul….and yet add energy and liveliness with just a single tune….and even though I'm sort of young to be saying, jazz is truly a great part of our heritage~*….and well it's not a side of me in which I often share as most I think would think me odd or strange perhaps but on the same note my love for the sixties with such groups as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Doors are equally a part of my younger soul embracing our legendary past where I don't think age should matter as today's generation alike I think can learn to appreciate where our musical roots have grown from and in this way the art of classic jazz and alike can live on forever even through our younger current generation ＾ ＾。
An early childhood memory~* for me would be the opportunity to
see (maybe just be present (._.;) ) for the legendary Miles Davis who performed live in concert at our very own Waikiki Shell here in Hawaii~♥ when I was yet to reach the age of 7…still I can clearly remember one thing~*, that is just wondering why he stood performing for so much of the concert with his back towards the audience (・д・`*)！！。。。lol the not so deep thoughts of a child and it wouldn't be until years later that I understood what his demeanor was and that it wasn't at all unusual =). I have friends even much younger than me whom embrace too artists of the like and some even in their teens, for me at now 28 I know I still have much to experience and learn whether it be from our storied musical past, present or into the ever growing and unknown future~ (*´∀｀*) ♪。
Surely Aibon's accent does present a slight nuance of a barrier as there are simply parts of the English language which have no equivalent in Japanese but in listening to this album I quickly forgot those concerns and here I think you'll also find a most unique sweet~* cuteness if you will throughout brought on through her delivery and with her time spent in N.Y. I'm thinking it surely must've inspired in some way to bring about such a brave project~*!
