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.

Imagine already being a jazz player. However you fall out of rhythm and motivation, but new kids on the slope gets you back into swing. :D
