On the first day Of Jan. is a sacred holiday in Japan, and it is unfortunate for Milt Jackson (Jan.1, 1923- Oct.9, 1999) not to be on the turn table of Jazz Cafes. However, there are some cafes being on duty. There at Kissako (03-6272-9354) in Jimbo-cho. Thank you very much, and Happy Heavenly Birthday !!
How many times Milt Jackson came to Japan ??
When he working for Modern Jazz Quartet, at least in 1966, 1981 and 1984. (It is said that in 1984, Japanese very popular comedian, TAMORI, joined in the session.)
Others, in 1979 and 1989 and maybe more.
In 1979, at Kosei Nenkin Kaikan in Shinjuku.
