About 40 years ago I heard Phil Woods in this hall.This hall was in Festival hall underground.[See yesterday’s blog] In this hall MBS of television “Young Oh Oh” had been recorded a TV program every week.It was this TV show was a regular band of “Takashi Furuya and Four Freshmen,”
Furuya was a concert held invited Phil Woods as a guest.At first he was playing with Furuya.However,when he started to play the solo, the audience of the atmosphere had changed.Alto sounds like we’ve never heard until now had lasted longer.Furuya did not play a solo.I first heard real jazz that night.
Phil Woods died in September.
