Ongaku Sessions is inspired by the kissa, cafes in Japan that play jazz and other music in a focused listening environment.

Latest episode

Here’s episode #4 of Ongaku Sessions. Set #1 features a bracing shot of late-’60s garage psych. It’s all fuzzy, buzzy guitar riffs and glorious vocal hooks. Artists include The Raspberries, Jacques Dutronc, The Cherry Slush, and Fleur De Lys.

Set #2 is a random meditation from an undefined country. Or, just a set of tunes that seem to fit one another. Artists include Old Blind Dogs, Richard and Mimi Farina, and Mary Coughlan.
