“Jazz-World fusions abound, but in general, the musicians that create this music play instruments that have already been integrated into the jazz “sound.” What is less common is to find musicians who play what the Jazz Journalists Association’s Howard Mandel would dub “Instruments rare to jazz.” Ľubomir Gašpar (Slovakia) plays the Cimbal, a kind of very large hammered dulcimer, and although I have heard other cimbal players working with jazz, I think he comes the closest to capturing the spirit, rhythms and tonalities of the idiom.”
