Had a nice evening down at University of Toronto being part of a panel discussion on students about to graduate from East Asian Studies and what they can do thereafter. It was rather nice meeting the fellow panelists (one of whom is an old friend of over 40 years) and meeting some students who were crazy to go to Japan...reminded me of yours truly a few decades ago.
Still digesting my Indian dinner which was catered into the venue so I'm keeping things simple tonight with a pleasant number from Tazumi Toyoshima（豊島たづみ）. A little over a couple of years ago, I wrote about her 4th single, "Tomadoi Twilight"（とまどいトワイライト）which was most likely her most successful release back in 1979. Well, her previous single is also eminently listenable.
"Everyday, Every Night" is a nighttime City Pop tune from October 1978 with a twist of bossa with Toyoshima singing it in a gently swinging manner. There is also something about it that reminds me of some of Henry Mancini's music from a decade earlier. Some nice solo guitar as well. Veteran lyricist Etsuko Kisugi（来生えつこ）took care of the words and Mutsuhiro Nishiwaki（西脇睦宏）came up with the mellow music. It's a nice way to finish up an eventful night.
