  1. March (feat. Ruri Matsumura, Haruka Yabuno & Nathan Blankett)

世界中で活動しているコンテンポラリー・ジャズ・ベーシスト細谷紀彰が、Tokyo Jazz 2020出演を果たしたヴォーカリストRuri Matsumuraを迎えた自身初のヴォーカル楽曲。Ruri Matsumuraによる叙情的な詞に、細谷の描く欧州ジャズの匂いを感じるメロディーを乗せた。
共演ミュージシャンに、細谷同様に国際的活動が目立つピアニスト藪野遥佳、イスラエル人ドラマーNathan Blankettとの国境を超えたリモートコラボレーションを実現させ、失われつつある色彩を取り戻すかのようなポスト・コロナ時代への希望を表す前向きな楽曲となっている。
