Jazz with a differenceIt is not clear who coined the term Pan-jazz, but it is used to describe either a solo Pannist or a small ensemble of Pannists; or a solo Pannist with a group of conventional musicians, usually a pianist, a drummer, a bassist, a guitarist, a saxophonist or some combination thereof, playing conventional jazz or so-called crossover music. The main emphasis is placed on the Pannist as the lead soloist. This music is characterised by spontaneous improvisation.
