Produced by Matsuo Kiyoshi
Have you ever heard JUJU? She is a Japanese popular female singer born in 1976 St. Valentine's Day. She made her major debut in 2004, and became popular over Japan around 2009. Maybe she look like a foreign woman, but is surely a Japanese.

They say JUJU had originally longed to be a jazz singer since her childhood. You might say it was rare, but anyway she got a great longing for jazz music. And the dream came true. She released her first jazz album in 2011. And the part 2 was produced and published in 2013.

And then, this is the part 3 released in 2018 December. Why didn't she release her jazz during the 5 years? Why? The producer of her jazz Matsuo Kiyoshi said she was too busy to do it. Some times she has held her jazz concerts, but no time to create her new jazz album. It does not mean she gave jazz up.


Listening to the album, I got a treasure. The 3rd song "Englishman in New York" was it. Do you know the song originally written and performed by Sting? She sings it with Kubota Toshinobu, a Japanese popular male singer. The song so touched my heartstrings. I have repeated it many times. I know, some might say they are not Englishmen, but who cares? Not just the two great singers, the musicians like Shima Ken also did Good Job!
