The Talk of Tokyo

This event, described by one Japanese jazz journalist as a "miracle," represents this American jazz great's very first performance in Japan. Don't want to get too Guinness-y about this, but perhaps it represents some kind of record of sorts for singer-pianist-songwriter Bob Dorough, i.e. the oldest (you do the math) U.S. musical artist to've ever made a performance debut in Japan---a nation of true cultural custodians. That country's press is overwhelmed with stories about this wonderful occasion. Has there even been a single article about this recent "miracle" in the west?
