It forever seems as if the modern jazz scene has countless ways to amaze. There’s rarely a time I compile these monthly lists where I don’t end up shaking my head in wonder. This month, the characteristic that’s grabbing my attention most is the music’s geographic reach. Today’s list includes music from Seoul, South Korea; Reykjavík, Iceland; Tehran, Iran; Adana, Turkey; Argentina and Germany; London, and Paris; the Ukraine and New York City, and more. Of the many ways to measure just how strongly the modern jazz scene thrives, its expanse and diversity of voices across the globe is one of the most encouraging…and rewarding.
