Having released TAKE YOUR PICK and toured throughout Japan, Larry Carlton and Tak Matsumoto are delighted to announce that they will be performing at the Tokyo Jazz Festival 2010. While it is the 3rd time for Larry Carlton(2006, 2008 and 2010) to perform at the Tokyo Jazz Festival, it’s the first time ever that Tak Matsumoto gets the chance to perform on stage.

As a lot of fans weren’t able to see Tak playing on stage due to the fact that Larry and Tak performed in small clubs and the amount of tickets was limited. Therefore, as we previously reported, additional live performances have been scheduled so that fans, who weren’t able to enjoy the show, still get a chance to see Larry and Tak grooving the stage. In addition to that, fans get one more chance – at the Tokyo Jazz Festival 2010.

Larry Carlton says: “I’m delighted to be able to perform the songs that I’ve written and recorded with Tak one more time in Japan. In my past career I’ve had the chance to play at the Tokyo Jazz Festival numerous times. But this time, I’m going to be on stage with my friend Tak, performing our songs, and while watching the smiles in your faces, I hope you’ll be able to enjoy the show as much as we do. It’s going to be something very special, so please come see our show!”

Tak adds “I am happy that I can play again because sadly our “TAKE YOUR PICK” tour ended so abruptly. On top of that, getting the opportunity to play at the Tokyo Jazz Festival in my musical career is a great honor for me. I’m grateful from the bottom of my heart for this chance to experience and learn a lot of new things. Please enjoy our show!”

The Tokyo Jazz Festival was first held in 2002 and this year will be the 9th time it is held in Tokyo. The Tokyo Jazz Festival will be held from September 3rd, 2010 to September 5th, 2010 in the Tokyo Kokusai Forum Hall A. Larry Carlton and Tak Matsumoto will perform on September 4th, 2010.
