Jazz is very popular in Japan. All styles are being played by  Japanese 
musicians. The most refreshing thing about the musicians coming up is  the fact 
that they are developing their own styles and not copying as much as  they used 
to do. A lot of Japanese CDs are continually being issued, many are  not 
available in the United States because they are expensive, $25 and up here.  There 
is also an very active re-issue program going on over there.

and  Asia.  Can anyone point me toward that  information?
