Jazz for Tokyo


Notes

For a brief era spanning less than a decade, American jazz bebop experienced serious mainstream popularity in Tokyo. This crossing of artistic cultures began in late 1963 and lasted until the start of 1973. To revisit this momentary overlap in shared musical taste, enjoy this continuation of "Jazz for Japan," featuring more '60s (and early '70s) recordings. Artists include Art Blakey, The Cannonball Adderley Quintet, and Joe Henderson.

(All tracks recorded in Tokyo except for 1 & 3, which were inspired in Kyoto and recorded in NYC)
