Japan International Jazz Day Tokyo 2019

The team that produced the first IJD Tokyo last year was asked by some of the city’s top jazz clubs to create a similar, but larger event this year. As of today, our commitment is to do at least 2 nights at 2 different clubs, but we are aiming for 4-5 nights at as many clubs. We will make IJDT 2019 more international, featuring players from Japan, Brazil, Moldova, Kenya, Russia, Spain, etc. We will reach out to other groups doing IJD events here to create a single, unified image for music fans.
