Bridging the Gap ~ March 4th, 2021: Golden Era of Japanese Jazz (1960s-1980s)
BBE Records recently released J Jazz Volume 3: Deep Modern Jazz from Japan. It's an excellent compilation featuring rare recordings from the height of Japan's jazz era, from the 1960s to the 1980s. Tonight, we will hear some tracks off this release, and from other well-respected Japanese jazz musicians... some from my personal record collection.
DJ Mr. Nick highlighted the first volume of BBE Records J Jazz compilation series a couple years back, which you can find the playlist to here.
