Koto Jazz 61: Song Stories – Searching for the Rising Sun

“Searching for the Rising Sun” is a memorial piece for my father who passed away at this time last year. As myself, dad spent his life seeking to share his understanding of Japan and East Asia with the west. He was an educator by trade. I’m a musician and sales person, but the end goal is the same.

The title of the tune is truly reflective of his aim — a search for the land of the Rising Sun, representing Japan.
