JAZZ
& IMPROVISED MUSIC

2024

Here you will find my choices of the moment. My main goal is to give an idea of ​​the current situation and this list will gradually become longer this year. With each album you will find a few soundtracks that give an impression of the album in question. To do this, click on the sounder.gif -icon and/or on the song title. To hear the albums on this list in full, go to "PLAYLISTS/LINKS" on the left.

You will also find more information on the left about the choices of previous years, playlists, labels and jazz sites.
