At the live spot in Yokosuka, the night when you listened to the young talent of Chigusa Award

Younger Than Yesterday 

Jazz soaking in tonight
File.8 Yokosuka Younger Than Yesterday
Reiko Shinmura (Jazz Cafe Chigusa)

The Chigusa Award was created to uncover excellent young jazz musicians. Every competition, the winner is given the opportunity to make LPs and CDs as a side prize.
A clarinet player from Yokosuka City, Miyawaki (26), won the sixth time this time.
It's a pretty young man at first glance, but when it starts playing, it's passionate, bouncing and brisk. The moment I breathed a breath, this time, the mellow, glossy tone attracts the heart of those who are listening, and does not release it.
Of course there is a technique, but the depth of his emotions seems to be appearing in the sound, and the gap with the lively appearance is also good. It is no wonder there are already many fans.
After LP and CD production, the release live is also held every year. Every year, the event was held only once in the area centered on Yokohama Noge, but this time the winner is from Yokosuka City, so even with the live spot “Younger Than Yesterday” (commonly known as “YTY”) related to him. Held.
YTY has been the center of Yokosuka culture since it opened in September 2001, and it is a space where you can enjoy various live performances regardless of genre. The spacious space of more than 100 seats, which has been converted from the former cinema, offers not only live entertainment, but also drinks and meals.

When it comes to live spots, there are also soundproofing problems, and there may be many places that are closed and closed. In that respect, YTY has a nostalgic appearance on the fourth floor of the building, and it's a former movie theater, so the lobby space is open. You can spend a pleasant time until the live begins.
The retro and cool interior, which retains the image of Showa, is unbearable to those who like it.

The owner is Yokosuka-born and Yokosuka-grown Sasaki. What a working dentist!
During the early days of Sasaki, there was still a drafting system in the United States, and some of the U.S. military stationed in Yokosuka also had cultural figures and musicians. Such Yokosuka touched the authentic American music, and he himself entered the world of music.
The reason I opened YTY was that a building owner who was a friend of old knowledge asked me to reuse the movie theater ruins. It is said that I accepted from the thought "I would like to create a place where music will gather!" I named it "Younger Than Yesterday" in the sense of being young at all times. Nowadays, a great musician has also appeared, and it is no exaggeration to say that it is a live spot representing Yokosuka.

The live members from this record are young, in their twenties and early thirties, but they are in excellent harmony with the retro-styled Yokoskanized space, and one word of "Cool!" Their talents are obvious if they can be heard directly, but combined with the atmosphere of YTY, they have become one and only live.

We rushed into the regal era, but if you want to be immersed in the ska culture that is inherited from the Showa era, please come to YTY.
