International Jazz Day from Osaka and Denver

Apr 30, 2014

In the shadow of Osaka Castle, many of the world's greatest jazz musicians performed for the 3rd annual International Jazz Day concert.  (Osaka was known as Japan's "jazz mecca" in the mid-1920s.)  Sponsored by UNESCO and chaired by UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador Herbie Hancock, the event opened with the haunting and raw sound of Steve Turre's trademark conch shells and Japanese drumming led by master Taiko drummer Shuichi Hidano.
