Music and Movies in the Month of January, 2014

31 01 2014

The year started with a nice vocal jazz show at the Cotton Club on January 3rd with the lovely Hilary Kole.


Followed by a new EDM event, Electrox, at the Makuhari Messe the next day.

Went to the newly opened EX Theater Roppongi for a Maia Hirasawa show in the middle of the month.

Then just the night before I was flying to Paris, my first visit of the year to Blue Note Tokyo to check out the Average White Band.


And I saw a few films this month as well though not all the ones I really wanted to see.

The Best Offer


The Sapphires




And a screening of a new Japanese film, Wood Job! at the distributor’s screening room.  I rarely see Japanese films but this was work-related.


What did I enjoy the most?  If I had to choose just one, The Best Offer.  Such a cleverly plotted film.  The official trailer:
