A bit late, but here it is, the setlist for my gig on May 4th at Shibuya Edge End.

2. There's Only You
3. I Came from Bahia* (Gilberto Gil/"Eu vim da Bahia")
4. Changes Changes
5. Jabuticaba
6. Beautiful Place

7. Falando de Amor (Tom Jobim)
8. Reach the Top
9. Baby Just Relax
10. Out of Nowhere
11. I'm Here
12. Slow Down

13. Passion

At my gigs when I run out of performance time, I usually take away one song here and there, and therefore - as usual - the above setlist MAY contain an error or two.

* In the middle of the first verse of my translation of Gilberto Gil's EU VIM DA BAHIA (I came from Bahia), I messed up the chords and had to start all over. That is a very rare thing, so I was almost a bit happy to be able to show the audience this, and share the fact that we all make mistakes.

It's one of the most difficult songs I know, not because it's technically difficult, but because the chord pattern NEVER REPEATS through the song, except for the last two lines of the chorus. Until that point, the melody and chords just keep changing and developing all the time. So if you're lost, you're lost, and there's no way to get back right.

Here's my recording from 2007 if you want to listen:
