Niigata jazz street festival: 24 January 2009

Jazz Street Festival. This was a really cool experience..

 We ventured into this event due to an invitation from Frau Eva, which is a cozy little restaurant at the end of furumachi mall 6, where they have some of the best draft German beer ever!!
Here's a link that shows a little more about the place and the cuisine..


Also here's another link for the Jiji Press news-article where they talk about the event:
 Since we didn't have that much space to play, we where practically one with the public.. I remember having to excuse myself for poking the customer's beers with my bow, and having the customers watching my music score and nodding in approval.. son funny!!

This was a performance for 2 hours, which took a lot out of us.. but it was worth it just by looking at the people's reaction, particularly when playing Libertango from Astor Piazzolla, which is a renowned piece that goes well with an ensemble group, but when playing it with piano and cello, there are many melodies we have to put together into a duet which makes it interesting..

This one is definitely one for the books!
