A Song For Japan

Trombonists from Japan and around the world perform for charity and to maintain awareness of the on going efforts to recover from the tragedies of March 11. "A song for Japan" is a beautiful piece, I think you will agree, written by Belgian trombonist Steven Verhelst. Enjoy.



Whether you play trombone or not, be sure to visit the website http://www.trombones.jp for more clips, information, free downloadable sheet music, t-shirts, artwork and tools to help you contribute to the cause through music. All profits go to the Japan Red Cross.



Special thanks to my high school buddy and fellow trombonist, Larry, who sent me the link.

Until next, sweet sailing.

Very nice...needless to say, my heart goes out to Japan and all it's citizens, some of which are close friends.

Charlie - thanks. I don't know why, but I've written about things we've seen post 3/11 but not about our personal experience. Perhaps I will do that sometime on Pacific Islander blog. Suffice it to say, our home suffered some damage, and we had to rough it a few days, but we were unhurt.

Frankie - glad you like it.

Zen - thank you for sharing it!

I need to have some tissues handy every time I watch it.

Stop by for a visit so we all know that you are well.

kehlwok - glad you like it. The folks up north of us still need lots of help. We have a couple of elementary school kids in the neighborhood who are from Fukushima. Kimie and I go out of our way to greet them and smile and make them feel welcome.
