The song boasts a stellar collection of musicians, along with Nanase and Marty, are Pata (X JAPAN), Shinya (LUNA SEA) and producer Hajime Okano (L'Arc En Ciel). Another song, 'Ashiato', that was written, produced and played by Marty and sung by Clair, is the current theme song of the anime series, 'Rockman'. The show is broadcast every Saturday morning at 8:30 AM on Tokyo Television. "On a day off from the Suzuki Ami tour, (Oct. 27th) Marty will make a guest appearance at Saito Nobu's annual live event at the Blues Alley in Meguro, Tokyo. This show brings together Japan's absolute top class jazz and fusion musicians and last year Marty was the first 'rocker' to join in. He played 3 songs at the sold-out event, and this year he will play for the entire set."
