Message I first met Mr. Kondo about 7 years ago, when I was just starting my career in Tokyo, and a DJ I met at an event introduced me to him. Since then, he has been very kind to me by letting me participate in his live performances and recordings. I went to Jamaica for a recording session before the world was swallowed by the COVID-19, but just as I was thinking of coming back to Japan and visiting Mr. Kondo again after I had settled down to create my work, he left. I’m sure he’s busy with “Blowing Heaven” after his “Blowing Earth” tour around the world, but on this day, he’s coming back to our world. I would like to feel the sound of Mr. Kondo’s electric trumpet with my whole body.
