about

runnin the underground passages of nagano city - snow poundin above. 30 second dash through the elements to the studio. secret chu-hi on the 10am party train - seems i'm not the only one. it's been a long winter. back down to the basement in a reverberating rectangle. two panes of glass and a hallway over from us - men in suits are having a business meeting in a soundproof room. we are on a different trajectory. crescendo on noise amasses - pounding drums, throb of bass, punctuation of electric guitar sting - mellowed with bubinga wood. fluttering fingers on the record button - what we thought we had was lost and surprises abound. is it jazz? mingus whoops bounce off the walls. a sullen salaryman stumbles by. bongo flash and a smile appears. it's been a long winter, but it's warm in here.
