Bossanova music - Black Orpheus by Sadao Watanabe and Toquinho
I'm playing Jazz piano at my band. Actually members are not young enough to keep active all the time, but playig music is a real fun for me.
I'm trying to play a Bossanova song called Black Oepheus. This song remained in my head for a long time since I first listened to this number by Sadao Watanabe and a brazelian musician, Toquinho so long time ago...maybe it was early 1980's.
Staying in Nasu, especially the night time is relaxing with calm environment. In Nasu I want to enjoy Bossanova like music. In urban cities like Tokyo, a little energetic music like rock or fusion jazz could be OK, but here in resort place, rock music is not needed for me.
I've not seen Sadao Watanabe's face for a long time but it's easy to imagine how he got older. Also, I wonder what Toquinho is doing now.
I found a beautiful collaboration play of black orpheus of these two guys.
By the way...yesterday I saw a strange news. Australian prime minister said that mankind will become extinct soon in this month, December of 2012. She seems to believe Maya's legend and she, as such a important person of such a top position of a country, announced on the radio of Australia that we wil perish.
i know some poeple, or not small number of people, also insisted this prediction from several angles of studies.
We don't have time before we disappear if the prime minisiter is telling the truth, I don't do anything about it, but just in case...Thank you and my life was really good.
