Germany's Vocal Jazz Summit Does Not Disappoint

{mosimage}MAINZ, GERMANY -- The Vocal Jazz Summit set out to be the place where the giants met, where artists and personalities from all over the world came together for a five-day long celebration of the genre we all love. It is hard to imagine how a summit with a forecast like that actually would be like, but I know, because I was there. I wont let you wait for the punch line: Ive never experienced so much good music, fun people, nice persons and great afterglows during such a condensed period of time. It was the best of times! And dont take my word for it! I could quote Peder Karlsson in the Real Group, or Juha from Rajaton, or why not Darmon Meader from the New York Voices, and of course Marco from m-pact this was something out of the ordinary this is something that everybody who attended will always remember.
