What is Shimomaruko JAZZ Club?

This jazz performance has been popular among locals for many years since the Ota Civic Plaza opened. The producer was the late Tatsuya Takahashi (tenor saxophone/4th generation leader of Tokyo Union), the late Masahisa Segawa (music critic) was the supervisor, and Hideshin Inami was the producer, and since September 5, It has been held on the third Thursday of every month at the Ota Civic Plaza Small Hall. In 1993, we received the ``Music Pen Club Music Award Planning Award*'' in recognition of our long-standing contribution to music culture. In 9, we celebrated our 2019th anniversary. We would like to express our gratitude to everyone who has supported us thus far, and will continue to swing.

* The Music Pen Club Music Award is a music award announced annually by Music Pen Club Japan.

"The 32nd Music Pen Club Music Award" Award Comment

Shimomaruko Jazz Club is a regular live event full of handmade feeling that is constantly adventuring in a small public hall.It is miraculous that it has continued for 26 years with the top Japanese jazz players, supported by enthusiastic local fans.The enthusiasm of the local government, local residents, performers and producers brought together the result of 300 times.Perhaps there have been a number of difficulties so far, but the attitude of continuing to contribute to music culture is commendable.A total of about 2 players have appeared on the stage so far.From the now-registered jazz legends such as George Kawaguchi, Hidehiko Matsumoto, Koji Fujika, Norio Maeda, Yuzuru Sera, and Tatsuya Takahashi to up-and-coming players who are active on the front lines, public events like Japanese jazz directory Is.
