Vanessa Williams Blue Note Tokyo

I feel like I haven't written in a while. Last night I saw Vanessa Williams at Blue Note jazz club in Tokyo. It was pretty good. She is a great singer and I knew some of the songs she was singing but not all. To be honest I prefer the doyennes of jazz i.e. Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Sarah Vaughan and Billie Holiday. She is a good strong vocalist and I could feel the sincerity in her singing.

Anyway, it was an intimate affair about 200 in the audience and we had a lobster dinner there. It was my mentor's 61st birthday so we also shared a bottle of Veuve Cliqout. I must be getting old or the bubbly was stronger than I thought because this morning when I woke up (5:55am) I felt defeated.

But with a Brian Tracyesque "I FEEL TERRIFIC" I jumped out of bed and started my day.

Hope You Have A Great Weekend,
