Sincere Gratitude For Keith Jarrett
As an improviser, Keith Jarrett has been the musician I was most influenced by since I was a teenager.
For the first time, he made me feel the creativity that maximizes the potential and freedom through improvisational music.
Keith's improvisational music is full of soul, pouring soul into it, energy pulsation, and dance, where there is no room for human thought to intervene.
I wanted to make a world that expresses such a spiritual sound.
So I started learning the language of jazz when I was a high school student.
I learned jazz for about ten years.
All the while, Keith's standard trio was in its bloom, so many of my repertoires were from Keith's repertoire.
I learned both Be-Bop and classical languages from this trio.
When I was a student at Berklee College of Music, I learned classical music as well.
