Dance Bon Odori in jazz, sing, get drunk

Just immersed in jazz tonight
File.3 Jazz de Bon dance
(Shinchon Koko / Jazz café Chigusa)

In addition to the label business introduced in the last column, Chigusa also performs event production and direction related to jazz.
The most time-consuming preparations are Jazz de Bon Odori held in Chigusa 's base studio · Noge. The first event will be held in 2014. The degree of chaos increases with each iteration, and it is getting big enough to express it with a uniform expression like "bustling" "great success".

This was the 4th time this year, it was held on September 22 and 23. Contents are magnificent, such as lots of performers, merry-go-roundlands, attractive shops of wild hairstyles. We also had a program for children and welcomed visitors with content that everyone can enjoy.
I think the concept is understood from the event name, but, "Let's dance Bon Odori in jazz!" Listen to familiar jazz masterpieces in Bon Odori style and choreographed in bon odori style. It is a lively performance by musicians, and everyone dances in a big circle. In the past two days, if there was someone looking down on the wild hairs from the universe, you may have to think that something is going on.

It is Chisusa that the region is wrapped in enthusiasm.
854 – 1024 x 683.jpg "alt =" "width =" 1024 "height =" 683 "/> If you've visited the Chigusa store once, I think that you understand, but inside the shop such as" let's dance in jazz " There is no casual atmosphere of saying, there is an implicit rule of "silently listen to the good sound of the record!" Jazz has a history that many excellent musicians repeated techniques and repeatedly sublimated them to art. Is it because there is a desire to listen to the voice that Chigusa 's courage to open the door is "a place for listening to Chigusa – Jazz as an art." That is the blueprint of jazz tea ceremony, and I want to keep that style in the future. All of our staff value the air feeling of such a store and intend to succeed.

So why did such a serious (?) Chigusa engage in this crazy event.

The closer you are to the essence of jazz, the more you realize the music of life, the popular music for men and women to dance. It is also jazz that you leave yourself to sound and rhythm as it is to your heart, enjoying without reasoning when you return to the origin. There is something in common with Japan 's Bon Odori. Chigusa carrying the signboard called the oldest jazz tea ceremony in existence in Japan is not just to be inclined to the academic.

At the time of the opening of the store 85 years ago, Chisaka , the music of unknown to many Japanese, jazzIt should have been a place to tell the pleasure of swinging. Therefore, I think that it is also Chisaka 's duty to provide a place to enjoy jazz in various forms.
If you want to taste diverse jazz as much as you want, you have to come to Noge Jazz de Bon Odori . Dancing, drinking, singing, eating, listening and getting drunk. I would like you to enjoy jazz with 5 or 6 sense.

Next year will also be held at Chigusa Produce, so please come and visit!
