Tina Wrase

At the end of September 2000, died Tina Wrase, who played saxophones and clarinet in The Cry for two years (1997-98).

Steve has composed, in her homage, a song called Tina's Tune which he has performed since in solo and trio.

The lyrics are from Ozaki Koyo, a Japanese poet (translated into English by Yoel Hoffman in "Japanese Death Poems" - Pub. Tuttle Co.):

If I must die
Let it be autumn
The dew is dry
