The Global Salon: Cities in Japan


Pianist Keiko Matsui

This is a heads-up regarding an intriguing event in NYC next week involving jazz, Japan, and my friend the writer Roland Kelts, who I met for the first time in Tokyo last February and with whom I conducted a conversation about my trip in Smith’s footsteps in Japan for A Public Space this past September. ┬áRoland and I have pondered collaborating on something in Japan in the future. ┬áIn the meantime, I’m still trying to understand and write well about Gene Smith’s reasons for saying he felt like he’d been from in Japan in a former life.
