SHINICHI YANAGISAWA TAKES THE STAGE AGAIN! Another Incredible Performance by Japan's King of Jazz!

It was that time again. Shinichi Yanagisawa and His All-Stars returned to the HUB in Asakusa for another jazz performance, and it was another success. The performance of mostly English-language jazz songs was quite enjoyable, as it always is.

I've attended these shows since October 2014 and haven't missed one so far. I certainly plan to keep it that way. Yanagisawa-san and his jazz band are incredible people, on top of being talented musicians, and their shows are always worth looking forward to.

Shinichi Yanagisawa has enjoyed a long and successful acting career, but Westerners know him best as Miyamoto in Shochiku's The X from Outer Space (1967). Yanagisawa-san's comic-relief characters comes darn close to stealing the show -- no mean feat in a film as outrageous as that one!

Many thanks to Yanagisawa-san and the crew at the HUB Asakusa for another excellent evening!
