Hello, last week I learned about the importance of giving information how to
pronounce names correctly and posted the message below with the audio mp3

Then I got asked how "Jan Matthies Records" is pronounced, that is the label
Ayako's new CD "Falling Leaves - Live in Hamburg" is released on with a
radio add date of Sept. 7, 2010.


So here I post the full information, hope this helps:


Ayako Shirasaki

ah-YAH-koh  sheer-uh-SAH-kee



Jan Matthies




Thanks to Jim Wilke for sharing some more light on the topic and for giving
the phonetically spellings.

Betreff: Pronunciation for Ayako Shirasaki mp3


Hello and thank you for the helpful jazzproglist,


Today I followed the discussion about support for correct pronunciations
with great interest as I am currently promoting Ayako Shirasaki's new CD
"Falling Leaves - Live in Hamburg" - Radio add date September 7, 2010.

CD's have been sent out to all stations on the jazzweek.com list on August 9
and should have arrived by now.


I was wondering why small mp3 files haven't been mentioned in the
discussion. I'm not familiar with the text phonetic pronunciation and wonder
how some people can pronounce correctly from those funny signs.


We recorded a small 154 kb mp3 file with the correct pronunciation of
Ayako's name and will make it available on the different websites later. For
now here is the link:



Hope this helps.

Best regards




Jan Matthies
