Fun fact: Art Blakey was really a super Jazz icon in Japan in the 60s


“When we hit Japan in 1960 or 61, I never saw anything like it. There were 7,000 heads going up and down at the same time and humming every note of everything we played….When we first went to Japan, they had Lee Morgan shirts, Wayne Shorter overcoats, all that kind of stuff in the department stores. The same kind of publicity the Beatles got in the U.S., we got in Japan.”
– Art Blakey, quoted by John Litweiler in Down Beat, March 25, 1976, pp.17, 16


“We’ve played a lot of countries, but never has the whole band been in tears when we left. My wife cried all the way to Hawaii.”
– Art Blakey, quoted by Don DeMicheal in Down Beat, May 11, 1961, p.15.


“I gained a lot of worldly knowledge, due to the places we went to. I would say we were the first bebop, progressive band to go through Japan, as a group and play concerts. Art used to refer to Japan as our second home.”
– Wayne Shorter, Down Beat, June 20, 1974, p.16.

@Andrew McGuire not a waste at all, due to that anime I am listening to it now, and im far from the only person like that.

@Andrew McGuire Since you use that type of insult…

Your profile picture really looks like a special ed kid trying to play every 60s songs he could find on the guitar

Yu Narukami

@Andrew McGuire I’m just telling you because it’s honestly sad.
