Talking about the song Marty says; “While keeping intact the essence of Ikimono Gakari’s ‘Kaze Ga Fuiteiru‘ melody that I loved, I tried to destroy it, reconstruct it and create 5 minutes of new music that might bring a tear or a chill, and decidedly lifts your spirits. Whether I accomplished that or not is entirely up to you, but when I just finished the recording of ‘Kaze Ga Fuiteru‘, someone who’s opinion I respect very much called it “grand and elegant”, so I`ll go with that!” He previously revealed the video for ‘Makenaide‘,which you can see here. The song is a cover of the hit from Japanese pop-rock group Zard and talking about the video Friedman says; “I feel so incredibly fortunate and grateful for the love and support of wonderful people from so many countries and cultures around the world. With this video, I tried my best to share that unique feeling with you, and what better way than to have those cool folks jam for us. A huge thank you to everyone who took the time and energy to learn this song and make this video so fun to look at.” The record is the third in a series that began with ‘Tokyo Jukebox‘ in 2009, and then ‘Tokyo Jukebox 2‘ following in 2011.  The trilogy presents Friedman’s inspired performances to Japanese repertoire he’s chosen to cover.
