It's easy just to think that the world revolves around our local patch. But it's remarkable the spread of what's going on at a selection of top jazz clubs around Europe

Take Stockholm's Fasching for instance presenting mainstreamer Joan Chamorro of the Sant Andreu Jazz Band on 29 Nov with world music band Tamikrest following on 1 December and avant trumpeter Peter Evans not long after on the 5th; Oslo's Victoria Nasjonal Jazzscene has blistering outfit The Core this week with the jazz and classical-loving pianist Uri Caine appearing on 3 Dec and the great avant guitarist Marc Ribot with his band Ceramic Dog the very next night. A-Trane in Berlin has the Marc Copland trio on Thursday featuring expat UK bassist Phil Donkin, a gig which is also live streaming; and staying in Germany in Munich at Unterfahrt the influential bassist Renaud Garcia-Fons is playing on Saturday.

At Sunside Sunset in Paris guitarist (and pianist) Kurt Rosenwinkel is playing on Friday and Saturday bringing with him double bassist Riccardo Del Fra and drummer Théo Moutou; while in Amsterdam at Bimhuis the Daniel García trio are a plum booking for Sunday; Polish pianist Marcin Masecki appears at Clamores in Madrid on Saturday; and in the last of this whirlwind whizz around what's coming up in Europe Portuguese singer Carmen Souza, above, appears at the Blue Note, Milan on Thursday night.

Once again a remix switches the action from the main gig room if you like to the lounge bar. So in other words you could happily hear Carrtoons' remix of Butcher Brown's 'Frontline' in the background in an ultra-relaxed lounge. 'Frontline' was originally on #KingButch that the US band released last year. I didn't enjoy the part-Butcher Brown SuperBlue collaboration with Kurt Elling more recently so very much. And while remixes aren't something I usually think much about given that they are built for passive not active listening this actually works much better than the Elling particularly if you are a Butcher Brown fan. Carrtoons operates in hip-hop and soul and it's a meeting of minds in drawing this all together elongating the groove's staying power and making it that bit more anthemic. SG
