jazzy Japan

Jazz has long held a hallowed position in Japanese culture. Musicians like John Coltrane, Art Blakey or Miles Davis were treated with the respect normally accorded to visiting prime ministers or royalty.

Today, Japanese jazz musicians lead the world in terms of popularity and musical invention and this playlist charts the rise and rise of Japanese jazz from highly collectible fusion classics of the 1970s to the Pharoah Sanders inspired post-bop that is dancefloor dynamite and the laid-back blend of jazz and hip-hop perfected by the late and much lamented Nujabes.
