As you can see, the Europeans are still in the majority submitting Jazz Song Alphabets.
Although, today is a premiere since this list comes from Eastern Europe.
If you would like to see here your own list, then use the contact form to send it in. Make sure that your list predominantly contains songs, that haven't been featured in a Jazz Song Alphabet so far.
