Japan's biggest jazz festival always features a highly diverse lineup of artists and venues, with concerts at NHK Hall complemented by more intimate shows at the two WWW spaces in Shibuya plus free gigs held along Yoyogi Park’s Keyaki Namiki street. This year’s international headliners include Chick Corea, Al Di Meola, Peter Erskine and Gonzalo Rubalcaba. Tokyo Jazz also makes for a tasty intro to Japanese genre greats – check out piano innovator Yosuke Yamashita, Terumasa Hino, Jim O'Rourke's Kafka's Ibiki and saxophonist Sadao Watanabe for proof. Tickets go on general sale from June 23.
