Singer Alex, the vocalist of Clazziquai who released a solo album last June, held his first solo concert in Japan at the Cece Lemon Hall in Shibuya, Tokyo 7 p.m. this Tuesday.

He opened the show with his hit romantic number “If it is you” and sang various songs to the accompaniment of a 12-member band including trumpeters and saxophonists.

The repertoire included “She is,” the theme song of the hit Korean drama “My Name is Kim Sam-soon,” “Miss understand” from his solo album, “Feel like making sunshine,” the jazz ballad “Day Dreaming” and a waltz piece “Waltz lesson.”

He also sang a hit by the Safety Zone, “Bye grief,” in fluent Japanese and also sang “Daisy,” “Flower pot” and “Coming home” while playing the piano. He showcased a total 24 songs this night.

During the show, he took out his cell phone camera and took a shot of the audience.

In 2005, Alex helped produce the remix album “DOPE SPACE NINE” by leading Japanese hip hop artist M-FLO. He also toured Korea with Clazziquai members.

In 2007, he also took part in M-FLO’s 5th album “COSMICOLOR” with top Japanese artists such as Namie Amuro, Koda Kumi and Bonnie Pink. He was featured in the song “Love me after 12AM.”
