With Our Girl (Daryl Sherman) in Tokyo


In my lengthy career this one beats all! You can't make this up. It's Christmas week at my sweet Tokyo gig, Tableaux Lounge in chic Daikanyama. Waiter comes up with song request written on paper: First some Japanese words -- then written below: Buy me meat asean.
Baffled by what the heck this might be, I approach an elegant Japanese lady seated close to piano.  She takes a look and immediately utters (quite clearly)  "Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen"
"You can't be serious!" I exclaim -- and then she starts to sing it. I run back to piano and the whole room starts singing along. They even knew the "bela bela -- wunderbar" part.  (N.B. nary a bagel in sight around these parts..)     Then.. more unlikely serendipity -- this lady turns out to be famous actress in Japan, Ruriko Asaoka!
Wish you couldda been there. Clearly the highlight of my trip. Warm wishes for happy healthy 2013. O genki-de, take care,
Daryl
