Tokyo Jazz 2004
Saw Herbie Hankock live on stage at Tokyo Jazz 2004. He was very, very cool and did a “Live with Jules Holland” style menagerie with 80’s Rock group Toto and a super cool Tokyo Jazz combo! The problem was that Jazz doesn’t really lend itself to stadium performances, and as such the performance lost a lot of its impact.
If you ever get a chance to go and see stadium sized jazz concerts, I’d recommend a raincheck instead… Especially if you have to pay for the ticket. $50-$100 a ticket, with a 40,000 capacity crowd: That’s a lot of money.
