Special CD sales to support jazz clubs

We whole world still have very severe situation with COVID-19. We cancelled a lot of concerts in March and April already. We decided so because we didn’t want to set the chance to trade the virus. We feel sorry to our bandmates and the clubs that set up the concerts. ( Japanese government has no exact plan to support them.)
We would like to sell our CDs (the list below) in special discount price and would like to present some money to the clubs. We know we are not so popular but we really appreciate if you can help! Thank you so much!!!

Each CD price is US$10 (1000 yen) and its shipping cost may be around $2. You can see the details of each CD at:

You can reach me either through messenger of the facebook or at this homepage.
