16th Tokyo Jazz Festival – Sept 1st-3rd

The TJF this year has moved to the Shibuy area after years in Yurakucho at the International Forum. Venues are a bit more spread out now so check the timetable carefully if rushing between gigs. I’m especially looking forward to the Treme Brass Band, New Century Jazz Quintet and Selim Slive Elementz and Yosuke Yamashita, but hope to hit as many shows as possible. Keep a lookout at exit 13 of Shibuya Station for a free live stage.
