About 'Smooth Jazz...and more'
Smooth Jazz…and more was developed as a platform to promote the music I write, perform, and produce to as wide an audience as possible. I chose the title 'Smooth Jazz' as I felt it closely approximated the style of much of the music I produce, and added '…and more' to give me an opportunity to share the knowledge and experience I have gained over the past 30 years working as a musician and teacher.
The Internet is an open forum where anyone can write anything about whatever they like, but I hope my experience and professional qualifications serve to add a level of credibility to the articles, all of which are based on either first-hand knowledge and experience, or are carefully researched.
The site has a contact form where anyone can get in touch if they find any errors, wish to voice their opinions, or leave feedback.
And finally, the construction of this site would not have been possible without the input from many people. I owe special thanks to (in alphabetical order):
|Takaomi Arioshi||-||Japanese translation, technical assistance, hardware support (Japan)|
||-||Feedback and proofreading|
|Makiko Kou||-||Japanese translation|
|Meiko Kusunoki||-||Japanese translation, help, advice, and support in many areas|
|David Rumsey||-||Invaluable advice and feedback|
|Tim Whitehouse||-||Hardware and software support (UK)|
|Manquin Zhou||-||For her love, patience, and understanding|
But most of all I would like to thank, from the bottom of my heart, the many people that have visited this site and listened to my music.
