I loved this. Even though I can't understand the lyrics, the vocal is like listening to a wonderful new instrument. Simply beautiful.

Many, many years ago (back in the 1980's) I was an active participant in the annual National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade committee in Washington, DC (I was in charge of marching bands for the parade for two years in a row), to celebrate the trees that line the tidal basin as a gift from Japan many years ago, and so realize how important the tradition of cherry blossom season is.

Thanks again for posting this.

Great music and lovely song. Very relaxing.

I enjoyed listening to it whenever I need to get a rest from my daily busy works.

Shigeki,

This is just so good! I enjoyed it very much. I guess I can only second what's already been said.... Outstanding!

Hello, Callie, John, Flora and Greg

Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and comment.
I much appreciate your very kind words.
I am very glad you all like this jazz waltz.

John,
Many thanks for your comment to the tradition of cherry blossom season.
In the news of the other day, a newscaster reported that the buds of the cherry blossoms in Washington, DC received little damage in this year due to the cold weather, I am extremely worried.
The pictures below are from the cherry blossom festival in my town.
They are previous pictures because not yet flowering this year.
There are many places that are held more grandly, but, as it is located in five minutes' walk from home.

Thank you again to all.
Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

The pictures = breathtaking! Just... wow.

We have our Cherry Blossom bloom season here in Victoria, BC also... it's going on right now! I was walking downtown the other day and it was actually "raining" petals on me!

Absolutely beautiful!

And it's why so many flock to our nation's capital every year to see them. I was worried about the cold snap, especially the snowstorm they experienced the day before the season was to start in Washington, DC.

Thank you for those great pictures. They are beautiful, and walking among the trees is a treat.

Your production and mixing is top notch.

Marry that to a beautiful vocal and well crafted lyric and you have a remarkable song.

A pleasure to listen to.

Charlie beautifully stated our sentiments. We have a cherry blossom festival near us but a very early spring caused them to all bloom well before the festival. Your photos add a great perspective to the tune.

This is very, very well written, arranged and performed!

Congratulations on a top notch production.

Hello, Janice & Bud

Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and comment.
I much appreciate your very kind words and your continuous supports.
I am so sorry to hear a very early spring caused the cherry blossoms in your region to all bloom well before the festival.
Spring is late this year in my region, cherry blossoms finally bloomed recently, but the weather report announced that it would rain this weekend. Indeed, cherry blossoms do not always go the way we want them to.

Best regards.

Hello, Greg

Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and comment.
I much appreciate your very kind words and your continuous supports.
Maybe my classic influences are caused by hearing much more American standard songs than Japanese pops since I was a child.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi,

I sincerely apologise for taking so long to comment on this creation. It's beautiful, really beautiful. Natsuki Yoshikawa's singing is a perfect fit for an incredibly vibrant composition.

This is definitely one of the best arrangements I've heard on Users Showcase. You've really done an amazing job. Your skill is outstanding!

Best regards,
Noel
