Bye Bye Japan

Ftarri Festival, Tokyo, day two

Ftarri Festival, Tokyo, day one

Kissa Sakaiki, Tokyo

We took a little break from doing Nothing. So, we meet with some dear Tokyo colleagues and played two improvised duo in separation. Michael did a set with earlier mentioned Morishige Yasumune (cello), while Commander Fagaschinski met the Captain aka Tetuzi Akiyama (guitar).

Airegin, Yokohama

Well, we guess you've seen enough of The Nothin' for a while. So, here is a photo of the duo of Morishige Yasumune and Viennese buddy Matija Schellander. We shared the bill with them at the Airegin Jazz Club in Yokohama. We caught this crazy street art dance performance ... or is it some kind of zen buddhist ceremony?

Candy, Chiba

Nothing in good company at Candy, on the record shelf, on stage with a beautiful solo by Morishige Yasumune and after the show with the Candy family.

T-Bone Studio, Osaka

Retroft Chitose, Kagoshima

Things like this can only happen in Japan: So, we played a concert in a bookstore, which also sells kind of german style sausages. Every attendance of the show got a book as a ticket and when you opened the book there were sausage sandwiches inside and all this done in an extremely lovely way. We shared the night with organiser →

New Combo Jazz Inn, Fukuoka

Now we are on the half-island Kyushu and the seldom possibility for the clarinetists to play at a real jazz club. 2nd time for Kai to play the New Combo after his gig there in 2008 with Los Glissandinos. Great Ramen place on the other side of the street, too. Hey Shayne, thanks for setting up the Fukuoka show! Right before →

Beware! It is back.

A being of few words and lesser thoughts.
