Hope Amid Tragedy


Last weekend, I met Bob James, the two time Grammy winner Jazz musician and composer from Marshall, Missouri.  The link I am posting on my blog (up there ^) has a Youtube video called, Jazz in Japan.  Scroll down to the bottom of the page and the video is on the right lower corner.  It lasts about 30 minutes and is a very touching story documenting Bob James’ visit to Japan to participate in the Iwate Jazz Festival to encourage the tsunami victims.  You will be encouraged by the experiences of the people who tell about how this festival helped them to find hope in their lives after such tragedy and the beautiful power of music in Bob James’ gift of song and deep respect for the Japanese people.
