No, yes, yes, yes! Jazz is not dead, and it does not smell. Jazz is alive as it was hundred years ago. First of all, it is a question of education. I live in Lithuania, a small country with a high standard of jazz education. The Vilnius Jazz School has influenced many young musicians, some of them became teachers themselves, and the jazz scene in this country is alive and well. Jazz in this country is definitely growing, swinging and blowing, and many Lithuanian musicians are well recognized on the international jazz scene.
