Dear All About Jazz Readers,

If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.

You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

There's a heavy European flavour to this episode as we explore the current scene in eleven different countries. Two albums on the Hungarian BMC label introduce BMC's latest round of releases: pianist Aki Takase (Germany) & her band, Japanic, and saxophonist Istvan Grensco & his Collective Special 5 (Hungary), which features the great American reed man, Ken Vandermark. It's a first time meeting for these two tenor titans of today. German drummer Peter Kahlenborn and his trio tear it up on their Vesica Pisces, while French saxophonist Sylvain Cathala's latest is a definite gem. From Denmark, you'll hear the quartet, Ocean Fanfare, with the first of a trilogy dealing with biodiversity, economic theory, techno and spontaneous composition. There's a whole lot more for you as well so kick back and relax while we do the driving.
