Blast of Wind
"-Fuo-" The music of "?-Fuo-" is so traditional-styled, yet Japanese-tinged, or full of personal sentiments and spirits. It would surely take you into another world where you never have entered! Inspiring with rural landscapes, scenes on the streets, and everyday-lives that he has been familiar with, Tetsu Watanabe translated such Japanese beauty in nature and precious sentiments into traditional jazz music in their CD, "????-A Blast of Wind-." Tetsu, a.k.a. 'A Poet with a Refined Tune,' with his pure, sensitive notes of the sax, is capable of showing his vision and world, and touching the heartstrings of his audience. Some audiences said that the music was so comfortable and soothing their mind. Others told that if someone had fine sensibility, he/she would project the music onto his/her mind, build up a vision, sink deeply down into it, and get trapped in it. Formed in '04. Performed by Tetsu Watanabe (Alto&Sop.Sax), Shiko Ito (Piano), Tetsuya Mashine (Wood Bass), and Manabu Hashimoto (Drum/Perc.).
