November 1. I told about a Japanese jazz critic with Akihiro Nakamura(中村昭博) in Hiroshima.

We are an ardent admier of Masaaki Awamura(粟村政昭) each other.

When he was in university he had learned directly an essence of jazz from Mr.Awamura.

He had a relationship with Mr.Awamura after graduating from university.

He showed me many letters from Mr.Awamura.

I posted about Mr.Awamura once. Go here and here.

In addition his older son is famous as DJ and song selection artist and music writer.Go here

The Carp, who won the Central League pennant for the first time since 1991, were trying to win their first Japan Series title since 1984.

Unfortunately Hiroshima Carp was defeated by Nippon Ham Fighters at the Japan Series.

When I was a company employee, I had lived in their hometown, Hiroshima city and Sapporo city.
