[QUOTE=Bev Stapleton;115533]Sure, just as we play soccer (futbol) here in the US.Not upset, Ken. A bit of deliberate exaggeration there on my part. I'm always amused by US jazz lists that fail to realise there is a jazz world east of Cape Cod and west of Seattle. Downbeat does this on an annual basis!
BTW, I included Diana Krall in my list, and she's from a place that's a bit North of Seattle. I also recognized Roberta Gamborini and Luciana Souza, who respectively hail from Italy and Brazil. Jazz is jazz. Quality is quality. Boundaries be damned.
