On February 21, I was privileged to attend anothe live performance by Shinichi Yanagisawa and his jazz band. This time, I was able to attend practically the entire show, as some well timed work cancellations gave me an early start.

Shinichi Yanagisawa, of course, played Miyamoto in Shochiku's The X from Outer Space (1967), but his acting career dates back to the 1950s with Nikkastu Studios. It's always a treat to see the multi-talented Yanagisawa-san perform live!

I've attended every HUB show with Yanagisawa-san since October 2014, so at this point, it's difficult to find something new to say, other than it was a blast. I've gotten to know some of the regulars there quite well, and it's always fun to catch up with them.
That's all for this month. I can't wait to do it all over again in the spring. See you then!
