Tonight’s show explores the richness and diversity of the European Jazz scene. Many American Jazz critics turn a nose upwards towards the majority of the jazz output citing that it doens’t hold true to the forms and standards of jazz, but the contrary argument is that American Jazz is stuck in a time warp, that it needs to evolve. The very definition of Jazz is its ability to move and grow.
