As part of the global Blue Note chain of premier jazz clubs, Blue Note Tokyo is the most prominent jazz venue in the city. The club opened its doors in 1981 and over the years it has built a reputation as one of the world’s top venues for jazz. Its been the stage for just about every jazz great: Tony Bennett, Chick Corea, Roberta Flack, Maceo Parker, etc. Various artists have released live albums from their performances. The venue also hosts blues, latin, soul, and world music. But the high caliber of artists definitely reflects the pricey tickets. Be prepared to empty your bank account and afterwards, feel good that it was worth it.
