LOVE FOR JAPAN – LOVE WILL FIND A WAY
Bluey from Incognito, together with a host of Japanese, US and UK musicians, and with the help of Blue Note Tokyo, has recorded a special single under the artist name Love For Japan, to raise money for the Japanese Red Cross in the wake of the recent natural disaster in northern Japan.
The single “LOVE WILL FIND A WAY”– for download worldwide on iTunes from May 31 – was written by Bluey, Incognito keyboard player Matt Cooper and Yosuke Onuma. The guitar intro was recorded by Larry Carlton at Blue Note Tokyo.
