File.2 Jazz excavation "Chigusa Award"
(Mayuko Shinmura / Jazz Cafe Chigusa)
2013. Jazz Cafe Chigusa established CHIGUSA Records to commemorate the 100th anniversary of its founder, Mamoru Yoshida. At the same time, the Chigusa Prize was established, which inherits the desire of Mamoru Yoshida to "raise young jazz musicians in Japan" and finds and awards excellent newcomers once a year.
Despite the long-standing jazz competitions nationwide, the Chigusa Awards may still be the sixth year young competition. However, the purpose of the establishment is to respect Yoshida's extraordinary appreciation for jazz and his passion for supporting young musicians.
After the war, troops rushed to Yokohama, and US military facilities were built one after another in the town. At the same time, jazz became a big boom, and the number of young Japanese players playing in camps and nightclubs surged. Always on the latest hot Chigusa that had purchased the record, that the band man gang to visit, had become a hangout.
Eventually, the number of US military clubs will decrease, and the work of performing by Japanese bandmen will gradually decrease. Jazz from home America As Japanese players came to Japan one after another, the performance of Japanese players was gradually limited.
For young Japanese jazzmen who want to learn more about the essence of jazz and pursue their own sound, it has become a very difficult time.
Meanwhile, we continue to attend young and obscure players is to Chigusa, many hours also listened to the sound of the record, is Mamoru Yoshida had seen a figure which strive committed to playing, or looking for a concert hall, such as the launch of the concert, the something troublesome I was watching. Perhaps he was putting himself on a young and serious musician dedicated to jazz and chasing his dreams together. He was said to be "weird", "stubborn father" and "scary!", But it is no exaggeration to say that devoted activities were the foundation of the development of Japanese jazz.
The Chigusa Prize is a form that has inherited such passion and affection.
The winners have been the first (FY2013) female vocalist Mari Kanemoto, the second (FY2014) bassist and Sada Endo, the third (FY2015) fruitist Erisa Ogawa, the fourth (2016) Five male vocalists, Akira Wada, 5th (2017) pianist, Takehiro Chiba. All are wonderful young jazz musicians full of talent and have been active after the award. If Yoshie Mamoru were alive, he would have been pleased while saying this.
