Many people have contacted me in the last few days to let me know that Eddy Fukano has passed away.

From his obituary:

Mr. Eddy Fukano passed away peacefully on Friday afternoon in Seattle, Washington surrounded by the love of family and friends.

Born in Tokyo, Japan, he attended the Gakushuin school and left Japan as a young talent to pursue his career in music, touring, performing, composing, arranging, and teaching for a career that spanned over 60 years.

He is survived by his son, Shima Fukano, daughter Sakura, and brother Yasuhiro. He will be greatly missed by his friend "Tanuki" Tanaka, Ms. Koyama, and Mr and Mrs Jay Hassel, and fondly remembered by extended family, friends, fellow artists and musicians, students, and fans.

Remembrance gatherings in honour of Eddy will be held privately.

Memorial:

In honour of his lifelong contribution to music, his students, the rare opportunities he was given, and 50 years performing and entertaining the Seattle community, memorials may be made in lieu of flowers to SMP, the charitable organisation bringing the gift of music instruction to the youth of Seattle.

Daily Wisdom

"It's easy to get next to music theory, especially between your peers and music classes and so forth. You just pay attention. I had a good ear, so I realized that printed music was just about reminding you what to play."
