wow, you play both drums and piano really well! did you start playing both at the same time? do you practice both drums and piano equally? or maybe one day piano and the next drums? do prefere or fell like you play one instrument better than the other? you sound equally good on both to me.
very nice, is that in coppenhagen? how do you like the roland rd700gx? sounds good to me.
sounds great nihonjin - i particularly liked the sound of the piano trio, i thought you had a nice group sound going on and i liked the arrangement on just friends.  thanks for sharing the videos...
hi guys,
thanks for the kind words!
to answer a couple of the questions.  
i played drums from i was 10 but took up piano in my early 20s while studying music in boston. i never had any formal piano lesson though only theory and harmony lessons at berklee. these days i rarely practise drums (unfortunately) because i'm just to busy teaching, playing, and keeping my japanese skills up to date (i have a degree in japanese form the university in aarhus)
anyway i like the sound of the rd700gx(i don't play one myself) but regarding digital pianos i want one with speakers in it. that way it feels more of an acustic piano to me. i tried the fp7 but the sounds in that one is not so good as in the rd700gx, i'm looking forward to try the v piano though.
ups wrong thread can someone delete it
no it was wright im a bit confused today sorry.
nice stuff. i remember that night at kings bar. i still work with mr. toho (the bassist) regularly.
to jmurray:  

yeah it was nice talking to you that day. so you still live in japan. you must have been there some years by now. anyway say hello to toho from me. maybe you don't know but i actually met him the first time in boston where we studied together.
nihonjin,

i enjoyed your videos very much. thank you for posting them!

i wish everyone who frequents this site would be unselfish enough to share their piano playing with the rest of us like you have!

it would bring us all much closer together as a community.
