Europe

Europe is a fertile cultural space where each country has its own angle on jazz. The result is a fascinating fusion of influences mixed with the local rich classical heritage. JazzWorldQuest is proud to host an interesting selection of independent jazz musicians who, along the way sent us their music to be enjoyed and popularized. Some of them came to Europe from other continents yet without forgetting about their ethnic roots as reflected in their creations.
