People like Django in the 1930s in France, or Gorni Kramer, Giorgio Gaslini, Misha Mengelberg, or Jan Garbarek, have abundantly demonstrated their love for jazz and their ability to make it their own by integrating imagination, European classical music, contemporary music, and folk, thereby transforming something “foreign” into indigenous. And here is the 20th century with its vast, fertile, diverse, and polychromatic European jazz panorama. Here this book: European Jazz, not just about passaports.
