I am interested in Lionel Hampton’s performance.

I found terrific live performance in Yokohama Stadium.

I quote the blog that an audience wrote:

“They played a Japanese song “Sakura Sakura”.

Lionel Hampton had been playing the piano with only one finger.When they were

playing ‘When the saints go marching in’, they paraded through Yokohama Stadium.

It was shocking live performance for Japanese audience.”
