Transcript of Fusion Japan

Fusion Japan Fusion Japan ジャズ。一体何のことでしょう。 Ontstaan eind 19de eeuw in Afro-Amerikaanse gemeenschappen in de Verenigde Staten. Evolutie door de tijd heen Evolutie door verschillende subgenre's ≠ Jazz werd in Japan, net zoals het ijzer en het brons in de Yayoi-periode, in één keer geïntroduceerd aan het begin van de 20ste eeuw. "Een geschiedenis van Japan; van samurai tot soft power." Willy Vande Walle, 2007. Leuven, Acco. (p25) En won al snel aan populariteit. Na een decennium (onsuccesvol) van onderdrukking als "vijandige muziek" tijdens de 2de Wereldoorlog, kwam jazz in volle populariteit terug. Satoru Oda, tenor saxophonist. (born 27 September 1927)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sadao_Watanabe_%28musician%29 "Less than three decades after an official wartime government ban, Japan was internationally renowned as “jazz heaven”, a place where
underappreciated American and even European artists could record and gig in a climate of
respect, historical awareness, and quiet awe." "Localizing Jazz and Globalizing Identities in Japan"

composers." "Localizing Jazz and Globalizing Identities in Japan"
