Jady Jane Live Schedule (Japanese)

At Jazz Art Sengawa 2010, Kaneko performed as a member of a brass duo called Yamaneko San. Tonchi is a steel pan player who has studied the instrument in its birthplace, Trinidad. She has a MySpace account (here) where you could listen to some of her recordings. There is something with her non-verbal singing.

Jady Jane is a jazz bar with long history. It established in 1975 and started to offer live music in 1979. They have three policies for booking music: something new, experimental, and unfinished. It reflects well in their live schedule. Also the pub is famous for the actor, the late Matsuda Yusaku (wikipedia) being a frequent customer.

Also she used to study in New England Conservatory under the pianist Paul Bley. Tamura is a trumpeter who has also a prolific career in jazz.
