I am looking forward to listen the jazz program on every Sunday night.
My favorite program is WORLD JAZZ WAREHOUSE.
Yosuke Yamashita was the first time appeared in this program.
I heard his interesting story at that night.
This week I’ll post this interesting story I heard on radio program.
Yosuke Yamashita told about his introduction to jazz.
First he talked about his boyhood piano performance.
When he was junior high school two years( in1956) he was start a jazz piano by request of older brother.
Their performance style was from Louis Armstrong era to Eddie Condon era.
Because his brother adored ‘New Orleans style jazz’ , they did not play modern jazz.
The first song that he played with students’ band was ‘On the Sunny Side of the Street’.
He decided to not listen absolutely modern jazz under the influence of brother.
In radio program he was talking eagerly about New Orleans style jazz.
In particular, he had heard well Eddie Condon’s records.
Here is Louis Armstrong, On the Sunny Side of the Street
