Jazz France

Welcome !

Since 2010 I have been posting jazz tips on LinkedIn and Twitter. Than the idea came to me to start a blog. I am grateful to some people who encouraged me to really begin the blog. Thus, here and now is the time to gather my jazz tips for you. I hope you, all folks that like jazz, will (re)enjoy it.

Ofcourse my tips are not representative for all styles of jazz. My favourite jazz-style is the so-called: avantgarde-nu-future-modern-creative- jazz.

Looking forward to read your comments!  Enjoy !
