都立日比谷図書館にて At the Metropolitan Hibiya Library

1975年頃、大隈講堂前でたこ焼きの屋台を状況劇場の某役者氏がやっていた後をやっていた頃、都電の「面影橋」の方へ抜ける大隈通り商店街を歩いてプロパンガスの10キロボンベを交換に来てくれと業者の店に前金で注文しに行ったその頃からそのジャズ喫茶「ジャズナッテイ」はあったのだろうか。

昨日、Googleで見つけて行ってみたのだが、最初は、四谷駅前の新宿通り沿いにある「いーぐる」の前まで行ってみたのだが、何て言うか、ちょっと気後れしたのかなあ、もっとヒナビタ感じの店を期待していたのかも知れないです。

「ジャズナッテイ」は思ったより小さな店だったけど、次にかけたLPレコードのジャケットを古いJBLのスピーカーの横にマスターが立て掛けに来るという伝統的なスタイルの店だった。

30分位壁にもたれて目をつむって聞いていたのだけど、最近は手軽にYoutubeで凄い音源を聞けるのですが、JBLの結構高価なスピーカーなんだけど、アンプの調整のせいなのかなあ。ベースの音も曇っているし、ドラムのジルジャンのトップの音が全然出ていなくて物足りなかった。しかし、午前11時頃だったけど、大学生らしき人や地元のおじさんたちがほぼ全員が俯いて伝統的な片足で時々小刻みなリズムを取るスタイルはとても懐かしかった。1968年に甲府のジャズ喫茶「デイトナ」の開店を手伝った頃(と言っても路地裏のバーからカウンター用の椅子なんかを甲府モダンジャズを聴く会の仲間の法学部の同級生と2人で運んだりしただけのことだったが、それでも人懐っこいマスターと色気たっぷりなマスターの恋人さんは僕らのことをどう思っていたのだろうか・・。)のことを思い出す。

When the later when Mr. certain actor in a situation theater was doing a street stall of an octopus pancake in front of Okuma auditorium in around 1975 was being done, was the jazz tearoom “JAZZ-NATTEI” here from the time when you walked on Okuma street shopping area which comes off to a way to “Omokage-bashi” of a metropolitan streetcar to order traders’ store to come 10 kilometer cylinder of a propane gas in an exchange by a deposit?

I found it by Google and went yesterday, the beginning was performed to the front of “the good accomplice” where I have in front of Yotsuya station along Shinjuku street, did what to say become diffident a little, it may be the one which expected more stores of chick vita feeling.

It was a small store more than I thought, but next “JAZZ-NATTEI” was the store of a traditional style where a master comes a jacket of bet LP record to stand next to the loudspeaker of old JBL.

I was leaning on a wall, overlooked and was asking for about 30 minutes, a wonderful source can be asked in Youtube easily recently, it’s quite expensive loudspeaker of JBL, a cause of an adjustment of an amplifier? The tone of the base also clouded and the top sound of Jill Jean of a drum wasn’t coming out at all, and it wasn’t quite satisfactory. It was around 11 o’clock a.m., but the person who seems to be a college student and local uncles were very homesick for the style by which all the members look down and sometimes get short and quick rhythm by traditional one leg mostly. The time I helped to open a jazz tearoom in Kofu “Daytona” in 1968 when (And, even if they said, it was that a chair for counters was just carried by a classmate of a department of law and 2 people of the company of a meeting who listens to Kofu modern jazz from a bar in a back alley, but still how did a friendly master and Mr. sweetheart of the master by which an ambition is much think of us…) is remembered.
