Jazz Profiles: A Survey of Jazz in Japan

Sunday, November 23, 2014 - 2:00pm to 7:00pm

Tune in to Jazz Profiles this week for one of the most comprehensive surveys of Japanese jazz music to be broadcast in the US. The survey will be chronological and focused on the music itself. Starting from the 1930s, each musical period will be examined through one musician or arranger's work. Join us to hear the sounds of Akiyoshi Toshiko, Shiraki Hideo, Umezu Kazutoki and many others.
