2022 has arrived, and from a jazz perspective, it came right after a truly spectacular year in terms of the quality and quantity of jazz albums that were released... so the pressure is on! Mondo Jazz's New Year resolution remains the same: keep searching for the most exciting, left of center, fresh, possibly under-exposed, certainly deserving wider recognition jazz we can find. In this edition, a touch of Zappa, and the excitement coming from the Brazilian, British, French, German and Swiss scenes. Enjoy the journey!

Happy listening!
