"To all my Japanese friends and fans.........I hope that
you will enjoy my new album.
It`s been a great experience for me to have worked with
such enthusiastic, interesting and wonderful musicians.
It`s all been so worthwhile....... I`m looking forward to
seeing you all when I come back to Japan next year
to play some concerts"
"I have been here in Japan now for four days.
I appreciate so much the hospitality and kindness of the
Japanese people since I have been here.
I hope that the music on my new album will be appreciated
to the same extent"
