Immerse yourself in jazz tonight
File.3 Jazz de Bon Odori

In addition to the label business introduced in the previous column, Chigusa also produces and directs events related to jazz.
The most time-consuming preparation is the Jazz de Bon Odori , which is held in Noge, the home of Chigusa . The first event will be held in 2014. The degree of chaos increases with each round, and it has become a scale that cannot be expressed in a single expression, such as "busy" and "great success".

This year, the fourth time, was held on September 22nd and 23rd. The contents include a brilliant performer, a merry-go-round, and Noge's attractive store openings. A program for children was also set up, and visitors of all ages and men were welcomed with content that they could enjoy.
As you can see from the event name, the concept is "Let's dance Bon Odori with jazz!". Arranged a familiar jazz masterpiece in a Bon Odori style and choreographed it in a Bon Odori style. Everyone dances in a big circle with a powerful live performance by musicians. If anyone looks down on Noge from space for the last two days, I have to think that something is going on ...

It is Chigusa that is the mechanism that makes the area enthusiastic.
854-1024x683.jpg "alt =" "width =" 1024 "height =" 683 "/> As anyone who has visited the Chigusa store once knows," Let's dance with jazz "etc. There is no casual atmosphere, but there is an implicit rule that "silently listen to the good sound of the record!". Jazz has a history of being sublimated into the realm of art by many excellent musicians. Takes courage to open the door of Chigusa, to hear the voice that is, I wonder because there is a feeling that "Chigusa = place for Kikiiru the jazz as an art." That is the essence of a jazz coffee shop, and I want to continue to maintain that style. All of us staff will cherish the atmosphere of such a store and will inherit it.

So why was such a serious (?) Nachigu involved in this crazy event?

The closer you get to the essence of jazz, the more you realize that it is the music of life, popular music for men and women to dance. Returning to the starting point, it is also jazz to leave yourself to the sound and rhythm as you like and enjoy it without reason. There is something similar to Japanese Bon Odori. Chigusu , who carries the signboard of Japan's oldest existing jazz cafe, should not just be academically devoted.

When the store opened 85 years ago, Chigusa was a music and jazz music unknown to many Japanese people.It must have been a place to convey the joy of swinging. Therefore, I think it is Chigusa 's duty to provide a place to enjoy jazz in various ways.
If you want to enjoy a variety of jazz to your heart's content, you have to come to Noge Jazz de Bon Odori . You can dance, drink, sing, eat, listen and get drunk. I want you to enjoy jazz with 5 or 6 senses.

It will be held again next year, produced by Chigusa , so please come visit us!
