First there was the blues. Without the blues, there would be no rock and roll, no soul, and no jazz. When our generation was young, we were mostly influenced by the Rolling Stones, and we became interested in R&B and blues, which had a deep influence on them. Blues, which is now considered to be music of the past, is actually a timeless important cultural property.
Producer Naoki Tachikawa
Born in 1949. Since the 1970s, he has been active as a producer and director in a wide range of genres, including music, movies, art, and theater, with the theme of media exchange. His field of work is wide-ranging, including rock, jazz, classical music, film music, art, stage design, and urban development, and he is gaining popularity as a music critic and essayist for his unique perspective. “The Shangri-La Prophecy”, “A Week with Serge Gainsbourg”, “TOKYO1969”, “The Liner Notes”, “I Stand Alone”, “CONVERSATION PEACE 10 Conversations About Rock’n’Roll”, “How to Listen to Music” Author of many books such as comment
Peter and I are two years apart. Although they were born and raised far apart in London and Tokyo, they share a common background: they fell in love with the Animals and the Rolling Stones when they heard it on the radio, and from there they fell in love with the blues. Maybe that’s why when we talk together, it’s always a good session, even if the topics are different, such as music or movies. This time, the theme is “Blues”, which I have always wanted to do. There was no script at all, and the sessions involved each other choosing the songs. It’s going to be a great night.
「UPSTAIRZ Lounge, Bar, Restaurant」

We also have private rooms and terrace seats, so you can spend quality time in a variety of settings.
