    thank you very much you to the photographer Mai Saitoh

Yokohama Airegin, is a small Jazz Club in center of Yokohama. His owner (Minoru UMEMOTO) lived ten years in Germany. He is a well-know trompette player who played with many European musician of the improvisation scene, as Peter Brotzmann, Peter Kowald, Joelle Leandre, so his little JazzClub became a very appreciated "rendez-vous" point for many European musician of the improvisation scene and still is. Tetsu and I like to start our Japan Tours with a first visit to Airegin Jazz Cub, a very nice place to meet again after one year of separation.

Some words from Minoru UMEMOTO about his Festival:

" IMPRO means improvisation or impromptu. I would like to mean it as [ FREE ].
In this autumn, I open 8 days of Anything-can-happen Music Festival. It includes Jazz, Classic and World music. This time, Yokohama Baroque Ensemble joins and plays European Baroque music. It will be more colorful than ever."   Minoru Umemoto
