Welcome to the first edition of Mondo Jazz of 2023! Judging by how the year started, it should be jazz a-plenty as we open with Jason Moran's latest project, released just hours after the new year started, dedicated to James Reese Europe. After that many recent compelling releases, from Thandi Ntuli to Frank Zappa (newly published archival material from the legendary Waka Jawaka and Grand Wazoo sessions).

Happy listening and happy new year!
