Recommended Posts

Many of you will know the name of

Janey Clewer and Bruce Gaitsch.

Janey is the duet partner of "Almost Pardise"

Eric Carmen version ("Winter Dreams").

Bruce Gaitsch is a classical,acoustic and electric guiter player

who played in the album "Winter Dreams".

Eric posted before about Bruce,

"He's a genius, and we had such fun recording these songs.

It was an inspiration to work with him.

It's amazing what can happen

when you're in the studio with someone who TOTALLY gets it,

and understands where you're coming from.

He inspired me to think up guitar parts

I never would have dreamed of with any other guitarist."

I went to their live performance at The Last Waltz Tokyo Japan on 4 April.

It was brilliant!!!

Janey sang with amazing voice and her songs are really beautiful and stunning.

Bruce’s guiter was so tender and crisp. I really enjoyed their live.

And Janey wrote a song for Japan "If Only For Tonight".

It is so lovely and heartfelt. I’m deep impressed.

So I want to say thank you to Janey and Bruce.

I decided to join Facebook to send a thanks message to them,

then I joined yesterday and posted to Bruce Gaitsch.

It is the post for Bruce and Janey.

Mr.Bruce Gaitsch

I bought Janey's new album “LOVE†and “Fallen for Brazilâ€.

And I went to Janey and your live performance on 9.April in Japan.

It was incredible!!! I enjoyed your performance very much.

Janey was so beautiful and she has an amazing voice,

elegant, warm, heartfelt, attractive and conrtilled perfectly…..

And your brilliant guiter performance!!!

It was wonderful night. I'm very excited even now.

Especially I was deep impressed “If Only For Tonightâ€.

I know it was written for Japan Earthquake Victims.

I want to say thank you for Janey. I'm Japanese.

The song is filled with love, tenderness, sorrow, sympathy, heal…..It is just I wanted!

I depressed after the Japan Eearthquake, I can't believe what would happen.

I was absolutely shocked.

I can't eat, Ican't sleep thght, I can't smile, and I can't go out for a while.

Then, music saved me from the dark painful depth.

I heard “Winter Dreams†( Eric Carmen with you!) so many times almost everyday.

Especially I love “Isn't It Romanticâ€.

Your guiter is so romantic.

It was NOT Romantic situation, we had earthquake almost everyday at that time.

Then while I hearing the song, I got romatic imagination and I could forget the pain or fear.

And I’m getting well little by little.

I went to your show with Peter Cetera at Cotton Club Marunouchi on 24 Jan.

Actually it was the first time

when I went out at night alone after the earthquake.

Peter Cetera’s golden voice and your amazing guiter!!!!

It was exciting night for me.

So I want to go again you & Janey's live.

I think music is healing.

I need something like the fire to keep me warm.

Then I feel the warm fire on Janey and your live performance.

May I say to Janey and you "Thank you" again.

Thank you for the Janey's "Song For Japan"!

I'm not good at English, then I just want to say it.

Naeko

Bruce Gaitsch gave me a message.

I sent this to Janey...she will love your note.

I do too.

So nice to hear that our music is doing what we want it to do.

We aren't trying to be something we are not...we are just going for the emotions.

Thank you for getting it...and supporting us.

Bruce

I posted again.

Naeko,

What wonderful, heartfelt messages you crafted to both Bruce and Janey. No surprise they replied so warmly to you! You express yourself very well and never give yourself the credit.

Another comment...what a HUGE compliment from Eric to call Bruce "a genius.." Great to see Eric's thoughts on Bruce again.

Thanks John, James, Jean (Wow! triple JJJ!!!)

Jean, you'll not read Eric's original post.

It's is the post COME AROUND "Isn't It Romantic" thread(10.06.10)

All the beautiful classical guitar work on those tunes was done by my great friend Bruce Gaitsch from Chicago. Bruce lives in Nashville now, and is one of the tastiest, most brilliant guitarists I've ever worked with. He played on most of Richard Marx's great records, as well as co-writing "La Isla Bonita" with Madonna.

He's a genius, and we had such fun recording these songs. It was an inspiration to work with him. It's amazing what can happen when you're in the studio with someone who TOTALLY gets it, and understands where you're coming from. He inspired me to think up guitar parts I never would have dreamed of with any other guitarist. I remember we had a great conversation about Claus Ogerman, the arranger of "It's My Party", and one the the heaviest orchestral Jazz arrangers alive, today.

I don't think I've ever mentioned Claus to anyone but Bruce, before. It was a complete meeting of the minds, and musical instincts. I don't believe I would have ever gotten those fabulous guitar lines with anyone else.

Thanks, Bruce!

Your'e the bomb!

Actually, Naeko, I have read Eric's post before. I read most of the old threads before I joined last December; Eric's posts were so darn interesting and I learned so much. That's what made me fall in love with ec.com. But, thanks for searching for it and re-posting again!

I agree with you, hossy!

Janey gave me some warm message to me!

I'll share her message.I have her permission.

Hello Naeko,

Thank you so much for sending this beautiful e-mail!

You are so kind to say the things you said regarding the show at the Last Waltz.

Thank you also for buying my 2 new CDs. I am so happy you are enjoying them.

I am especially happy you were touched by the song "If Only For Tonight".

I knew I had to do something to help. I hope the song will raise a lot of money for the children.

Thank you again for writing Naeko and for all your support.

All the best to you.

Janey

I send another message for Janey.

Wow, Janey!

Thank you for reply!

I got a message from Bruce, too.

I appreciate your kindness.

I told you on that e-mail, I’m depressed after the Japan Earthquake.

Then music ease and heal me little by little…..

Actually, an information that “Morito†wrote on his blog make me happy and feeling well !!

He wrote on his blog,

“Janey Clewer will release new album. It’s incredible!

I did the cover artwork for Janey.

Peter Cetera, Eric Carmen ect, joined her new album.â€

When I read it, I was so excited. Because I love Eric Carmen songs.

I knew you from the album “Winter Dreamsâ€, and I’m interested in you and Bruce,

I got to know “Only Time Will Tell†and “The Bossa Nova Hotelâ€.

At first, I’m so glad,“Wow! Eric coming back to music world!!!!â€

But it wasn’t true….so sad.

Then it’s gonna be a GREAT chance to get your new CDs!!!

I love your beautiful, heartfelt songs and Bruce’s incredible guiter……

You are so amazing, sweet, warm, tender, creative, good taste.

The CDs are stunning.

I love “One At Heartâ€,too!!!

It’s filled of love. It is the perfect Love!

BTW, do you know Morito uploaded “If Only For Tonight†live on Youtube

only for a couple of days?

Lucky for me, I watched it with my daughter. She is 11 years old.

It was great experience to share “the wonderful night†with my daughter.

While we watched the video, I told her about your “thoughts†for Japan.

Sadly it was removed, but it was precious moment for us!!!!

Thank you so much and I hope to see you on your next live in Japan!

Best wishes

Naeko

One more message from Janey!

Thank you Naeko for your sweet e-mail.

I am so happy you like the 2 new CDs.

"One At Heart" is actually one of Bruce's favorite songs too!

I really appreciate all of the wonderful things you said about my songs and my voice.

It means a lot to me.

Yes, I know about Morito uploading the video "If Only For Tonight".

In a few days, there will be a surprise. Morito is making the video very special.

During the live, Janey and Bruce called each other "Honey" "Darlene" heartpump

So sweet!!! They loved and proud each other indeed.

Janey sang with Eric "Almost Paradise",

"It seems like perfect love is so hard to find",

then I feel "perfect love" is there between Janey and Bruce heartpump

Bruce answered,
