What is Jazu Kissa?
Jazu kissa, a concept which started in 1920s Japan, are spaces where jazz music is played for dedicated listening, rather than as background music. An important musical resource for musicians, journalists and jazz enthusiasts, there were around 600 jazu kissa operating across Japan at their peak.
A significant cultural phenomenon, jazu kissa also served as places to hear important jazz records that may otherwise have been too expensive for individuals to buy, allowing the growing music genre to be more accessible to all.
