Get intoxicated with heat and coolness! DOLPHY's second venue opens in Bashamichi, Yokohama!

熱く、クールに酔いしれる! 横浜・馬車道にDOLPHY2ndオープン!

Immerse yourself in jazz again tonight
File.7 DOLPHY 2nd Bashamichi
Mayuko Niimura (Jazz Cafe Chigusa)

JAZZ SPOT DOLPHY, which is used for the Chigusa Award selection live every year, opened in Honmoku in 1980. Later, in 1990, he moved to Noge in order to expand the venue for jazz live performances. Talented jazz musicians from Japan and abroad perform live every night, making your night in Noge even more intense.
The owner of a long-established jazz club might make you feel nervous to talk to him, but the owner, Tsunehiko Komuro (people around him call him Tsune-san), is a friendly and cheerful person. Even when I say something light, they laugh and listen. The reason why he is loved by so many musicians is probably because of his open-mindedness. Chigusa sometimes pops in for coffee, and I feel relieved when I see Tsune.
He was thinking of opening a store in Kannai in order to provide more opportunities for musicians to perform, and this April, he opened Dollfie 2nd in Bashamichi.
At the opening party, not only regulars but also jazz musicians who had finished their work came to celebrate, and the session in the luxurious setting continued until late at night. The interplay of sounds during the improvisational performance without any prior meetings was both interesting and wonderful, and I think it was the perfect opening for the audience to feel their respect for Dollfie.
Above all, I will never forget the happy faces of the musicians.
The location is on the 4th floor of a multi-tenant building. It seems that the space was originally operated as a pub. Although some changes have been made, such as setting up a stage and adding lighting, the interior remains the same as before. Despite the new era name, the atmosphere inside the store is reminiscent of the Showa era, and for some reason it feels calming. Apparently, musicians say that the sound is better than Noge's Dollfie.
Apparently they plan to actively include acoustic and vocal-centered live performances. The restaurant will eventually have a chef and serve authentic cuisine, so it is sure to become a new tourist attraction in Yokohama.
There are many jazz clubs around Kannai, but there are very few musicians playing there. Because it's Dollfie, "top people" gather and the audience is captivated.

—It's just something you've been doing for a long time.

Mr. Tsune says with some reservations that he has been providing a venue for ``increasing the number of musicians' opportunities'' in Noge for nearly 30 years, and his passion for jazz, ``I want young people to be more active,'' led him to open the second venue. I guess he gave her a boost.

—I think you need to increase the number of seeds for your own meals.

The man himself just laughed.

It's close to Bashamichi Station on the Minato Mirai Line and the north exit of Kannai Station on the JR Keihin Tohoku Line, so even if you're intoxicated by alcohol and jazz, you can still rush to catch the last train. I'm really looking forward to this new development, which is a little different from Noge's Dollfie.
