From the looks of eager anticipation in the packed Regattabar before veteran Polish trumpeter Tomasz Stanko’s first set on April 20, 2010, one might have been tempted to conclude that European jazz had finally “arrived” in the United States.  Ironically enough, it must have been something of an empty victory for the Europeans.
