Swoods's current selection is:
My Funny Valentine
by Ryo Fukui
Fukui seems to be a little divisive among jazz heads, mostly the purists, for reasons I can't comprehend.

He was a Japanese jazz pianist based in Sapporo, playing regularly at the "Slowboat" jazz club in Sapporo, of which he and his wife Yasuko were the owners.

He began to teach himself the piano at the age of 22, releasing his first album, Scenery, six years later and his second album, Mellow Dream, the year after. He continued improving his skills over the following years in live performance, often appearing in a trio and playing at the Shinjuku Pit Inn, Kichij?ji's "Sometime" jazz club, and the "Jazz Inn Lovely" in Nagoya.

He received the Sapporo Culture Encouragement Prize in 2012.

I was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar. That much is true.
