    Jazz from around the World

    I hope that forum members will look for and offer tracks from a wide range of the World's Countries.
    I will start things rolling with some jazz from Italy.

    Hi John,
    This is Henry Texier, French bassist, and a long favourite of mine. Would this qualify?
    There's a distinct African/African Indian feel in this track.http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...wyOEJEw#t=242s

    My, this must be a good thread - already we have controvery.
    I must admit, when I suggested this thread , I had in mind jazz music (of any sub-genre), presenting samples of indigenous jazz.
    However, I obviously havent thought it through too well, and who am I to prevent Forum members from handling the subject as they wish
    with my blessing.
    An individual comment to J.W. (Hi John, its good to have you back).
    Its true that jass developed in the States (New Orleans to be precise) but even then its roots are partially derived from the parts of the world
    from whence the originators stem. Africa mainly of course but Europe too. (Think Cajun and more lately, Latin America.)
    Yes, when jazz extends to other countries there is inevitably going to be many similarities to American jazz music, (in its many forms).
    However when researching for the thread (via Youtube I admit) it became apparent that differences do occur and National characteristics
    do creep (or in some cases jump) in.
    Finally, you use the term "spontaneous improvisation" and I am sure this is still important in solo contributions. But when it comes to many jazz
    productions, you will notice the reference to "arranged by" which applies to most of them. Enough said.

    hi j w, your reply to john (oldude) got me wondering. i think what you are saying is, only american jazz is the real thing. jazz from say france or italy is not, it is a copy. i am looking at my designer watch,it is not real,but a knock off. it looks good, works fine, and does the job,but is not a real one. so could foreign jazz be considered like knock off jazz then? it is something that never occured to me before. i have got to think about this. gord

    although that japanese hardbop was quite good,i found something missing that i get when listening to the likes of coltrane,dexter or blakey.maybe j.w. is right in his assessment of foreign jazz. gord

    Hi Mat,
    That seems to be the sort of thing that I'm aiming at.
    Remind me of where it comes from - Poland or russia or where ?
    Hi gord,
    This is obviously not Japanese musicians and I dont understand the writing-strangely enough.
    I assume they are visitors to Japan and as such they are probably American Hardboppers.
    We must surely listen to indigenous players to discover whether their music has anything different to it.

    Cheers John

    Glad you liked it, John. It's Polish jazz in all its glory.

    I apologise if suggesting you're Russian seems insulting.
    (and now I must apologise to any Russian forum members and deny any
    intent of offense)
