Food Music Weekly revue: 2012 week #39 (September 22 to 28)

Event: On September 22 at the Suginami City Office in Asagaya was an event with table-tennis Olympic medalist Fukuhara Ai (aka Ai-chan). Ai-chan was named one-day chief of the Suginami police station, in order to promote road traffic safety. She was there with Tokyo police mascot Pipo-kun, and there was a performance by the Suginami Wind Orchestra. (See the video I took below.)

New music: I dropped by a small thrift shop in Ogikubo, and looking at me was a CD by Maeda Norio & Tin Pan Alley. I had seen the same on vinyl a few weeks before and was curious about it, so this meant I just had to get it. "Soul Samba Holiday In Brazil" is an album of bossa/samba covers with lots of great synths, and also Hosono Haruomi's band!
