“Yokohama Jazz Promenade” was started in 1993 through the involvement of citizens and musicians, according to the catchphrase: “Let’s turn the entire city of Yokohama into a music stage.” Its scale has steadily expanded over the years with the support of and cooperation from many people. As a result, it came to attract as many as 134,000 visitors in 2007. Along with the expansion of the Jazz Promenade, various jazz events of all sizes have come into being, and the number of jazz clubs operating in Yokohama has grown steadily. Today, Yokohama Jazz Promenade has become the festival that makes a strong appeal of “Yokohama as the City of Jazz,” thereby contributing to activate the town and increase the number of visitors.
photo03Backed by the enterprising spirit of a port city, “Yokohama Jazz Promenade” integrally reflects the entire advantage of Yokohama’s history, culture and location. During the two days of the festival, top musicians from all over Japan gather here in Yokohama to perform in the “Jazz Hometown of Japan.” Attracting more and more musicians from overseas countries in recent years, Yokohama Jazz Promenade is becoming an event truly worthy for this international port city.
Taking full advantage of its historic background of nurturing prominent jazz musicians in Japan and the world, Yokohama Jazz Promenade will deliver the hottest, grooviest jazz music throughout Japan and the world.
