Mr. Alan Evans passed away

The renowned producer of the world-renowned Arbiter CD, a label I admire I was shocked to know now that Mr. Alan Evans passed away.

I had heard that he was fighting against the disease. He was giving me advice about the pianist and mastering, and he said he was on the mend. I assumed. I wanted to talk more about the pianist and his records.

I hadn't met him in person yet, and I had hoped to visit him in New York one day, but it didn't happen. I am so sorry.

Although I am from far away from Japan, I send my condolences from the bottom of my heart.
