My Own Tokyo Blues

from Japan Web Magazine

I can’t shake them.

Tokyo Blues

Horace Silver 5tet Tokyo Blues 1964

Recorded July 28 1964, Juan les Pins, Antibes Jazz Festival

Horace Silver 1968 Rotterdam

Song for My Father

Billy Cobham on drums.

One thing leads to another:

Cannonball Adderley Quintet

feat. Joe Zawinul (Oslo, 1969) NRK (c)

“I’ve never heard Cannon sound quite like this.. awesome and spacey”

“which is one kind of experience”

And I ended up here:


Sonny Stitt, Howard McGhee, JJ Johnson, Walter Bishop, Tommy Potter, Kenny Clarke

A mini-sampling of American jazz.
