This beautiful original melody was written and performed by Pianist-Composer Nobuyuki Mizuoka and released on his album 旅人星 (Tabibitoboshi ー Wanderer's Star). To illustrate the live performance in this video, I used a number of my photographs taken during the height of cherryblossom season in Hibiya Park, Tokyo. The weeping cherry trees are particularly awesome!
Mizuoka-san has a bottomless creative capability that may very well catapult him to great heights as an international-caliber composer-arranger. And how wonderful it would be for that to happen in time for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics!!
