Toshl's collaboration
« on: February 02, 2018, 08:46:26 AM »
This collaboration with Yuki Saori(由紀さおり) took place in April 1997.
A lot of X fans came in and supported Toshl not knowing his decision of leaveing the band.
Anyway I love this performance. Tears is my favorite song.

♪ Scat at Dawn (夜明けのスキャット)


(3:15~ )

Y : Good evening! I am Yuki Saori.

T : Good evening! I am Toshi. (Yuki feels dizzy because of the big shout) I proposed to collaborate with Yuki for this stage.

Y : It’s an honor to perform with you.

T : My pleasure.

Y : May I be close to you... (to the audience) Is it OK? We just sang “Scat at Dawn” together. When I debuted with this song, I wonder if Toshl was a junior high school student or a high school student?

T : I faintly remember the melody RURURARA on the far side of memory.

Y : Or maybe you were still in the mother’s stomach?

T : Maybe it is not that far.

Y : Is that so? Anyway, I am very happy to sing my songs in front of this young generation. Thank you very much.

T : The pleasure is mine.

Y : I expected that Toshl would come with the 3-meter rooster comb on his head. But this style is also cool!

T : Yeah, I changed it to a completely natural style.

Y : Good! We’ve been together at NHK Hall, even though it was only once.

T : Right. It was in the Koukaku Utagassen.

Y : Yes, that’s right. I’d like to sing the song with you.

T : That’s what I want. Thank you.

Y : Then, “TEARS”

(2017.12.13. FNS Music Festival)

Collaboration with Kiryuin Sho from Golden Bomber. This is the worst collaboration I've ever heard. Even though Toshl lowered the key for him, the result was awful.

Nevertheless, Toshl said he was happy to be able to perform with a young generation on his radio show. It's very humble of him.

Saori Yuki is a beautiful singer.  I watched them sing something else together the other night.   That whole performance was wonderful.

And then the other one with Kiryuin Sho.  Yea, that was rather a big disaster on his part but not Toshi's.  Eeeekkkk!

Indeed! Yuki is so elegant and has beautiful voice. I think Toshl would be better off collaborating with women, because his voice is so high toned.

I disagree a little. Have you listened to his duet with Kyo from Sukekiyo? That's incredible! Kyo's deep tone and Toshi's high pitches perfectly match. It's an incredible song.

From what I have heard which was probably 4 songs, altogether, his voice and Yuki's matched fabulously in their duets, together.  You may be right that he should sing more with women due to his higher pitch, even though he's listed as a tenor.  He sings much higher than a tenor quite a bit of the time.  Beautiful!

It was deleted from youtube (only the original version is there where Kyo sings alone). Soundcloud has it (well, for now)

I couldn't find it anywhere else, so I saved it to myself in mp3 [blushes]. Spotify only carries the non-collaborative version.

Teemeah, you're right. Toshl collaborating with Kyo is stunning. I've never heard of Sukekiyo before. It seems to be a superband like S.K.I.N.
