only one jazz player, Benny Golson. if the word jazz is being used to sell the music the least that could be done is to feature more jazz artists from a variety of jazz genres. the music has over a 100 yr. old history and there are players from every genre available. I can't speak for the thai musicians but the best that can be expected are decent copies. I'm using the word jazz to mean interaction through improvisation and not just a soloist with the band playing the same accompaniment the same way every time. if you're a jazz lover do go and hear benny golson, his compositions will be played as long as there's jazz & he won't be around that much longer.
