There's no way to use geographical borders to define this music called jazz. For instance, the Freequestra from Slovenia: led by acclaimed guitarist Samo Salamon— the ensemble wends its way with power and emotion through Salamon's new Free Sessions Vol.2, a rollicking excursion through the avant-garde. Or in the case of The OGJB Quartet, a quartet of four masters from the USA (Oliver Lake, Graham Haynes, Joe Fonda & Barry Altschul), their new release, Bamako comes out on a label from Finland. German alto saxophonist Angelika Niescier calls on three American musicians for her latest on a Swiss label. Or Last Poets, not a group you would consider a jazz group in any sense, yet you'll find jazz on many of their recordings, emphasizing their free expression. Lots more "traveling" this episode. Get on board; you'll enjoy the ride!
