The Associated Press By LEONARD FEATHER MOSCOW hot jazz New Orleans jazzand cool jazz West Coast jazz and East Coast jazz will the next step be Soviet jazz The possibility is not as remote as it might seem Already there are jazz clubs in Moscow Leningrad and Kiev Their main objectives are no long er merely to listen to American music or try to imitate it but rather to evolve a new style ol music along similar lines At jazz festivals held annually since 1957 in Tartu Estonia and recently at Leningrad University new works by some of these com posers have been Un like the stiff heavy overorches trated music of the older Soviet composers who have tried to grap ple with jazz these works are au tfojntic and leave considerable freedom for improvisation Typical of these young writers is Vadim Sakn ahard swinging pianist who has written one work With Inspiration that would pro vide a thoroughly suitable vehicle for Dizzy Gillespie Miles Davis or almost any other top American combo As Benny Goodman observed during his meeting at the Com posers Union in Moscow jazz is no longer merely an American music It is a music of the world One of the factors that held it back for many years outside was the inabilityof mu sicians in other countries to de velop the right rhythmic feeling Today because of the vastly ac celerated communications a So viet musician who tries hard enough can gain access to the new developments in jazz and can learn from assiduous listening how to swing But it is not enough for them merely to sound like their Ameri can counterparts Says Leonid Pereversev A

copies of American jazz all were thriving complete with loud drums and comedy effects This kind of thing was criti cized and wrongly equated with true jazz As a result all jazz condemned Only in recent yearshas there been a realiza tion that jazz is not mere enter tainment or music for dancing Pereversev says that now jazz is out in the open again dozens of musicians in the 1825 age bracket are working on the evolu tion of a style that may ultimate ly earn international acceptance not as an imitation of the Ameri can original but as music with an identity of its own Some sun to be seen
