It might be a common question for customers at jazz cafe, “HOW CAFE IS SELECTING ALBUM EVERY DAY”??
Probably it should be a key issue at cafe, like a corporate secret !
There is a basic policy of each cafe.
Then, in details, each time, decided one by one viewing customers faces, maybe. Oh, it is an EXPERIENCE !! Furthermore, there should be a flow. It is tough ERIC DOLPHY AT FIVE SPOT just after KEITH JARRETT, KOLN CONCERT….
When I visit GENIUS, usually owner softly would ask me, “If there is any album you would like to be played ??”
Oh, this is my turn. I try to think cafe’s policy, and customers faces by myself very quickly, then, softly, ask cafe, “MAY I ASK xxxxx TO BE PLAYED ??”
Today at GENIUS, it was NOW HE SINGS, NOW HE SOBS.
AA: Just image of cafe.
BB: In the afternoon, more ladies came (who were expecting some sweets, like me !!!!!)
CC: A little bit serious, sorry….
Chick Corea has so many faces. But his BASE should be in this album. In 1969 it was released in Japan, then GENIUS opened originally in Shibuya in 1970. Almost the same time. Nowadays cafe image is very soft, matching sweets, however, its CORE should be same as its original open in 1970!!!!!!
