Takapartch, Tokyo

Musician, composer, and multi-instrumentalist Takapartch returns with his trumpet and his whimsical blue box. Insert a coin and make your choice of song. Match your mood: soundtracks, folk songs, classical, jazz or Takapartch originals. Each show is different, but you always leave with a smile.

The Human Juke Box was the outgrowth of an eclectic life of performance on streets, in live-houses, on stages and at festivals; an excursion from pantomime and puppetry production; an offshoot of dabbling in drama and dance. Now close to its 30th anniversary, expect Takapartch to celebrate with a contented smile. The world will call, and his trumpet refrain will be ready.
