All distance is relative, especially where geopolitical borders and ideologies are involved. We speak one language, they speak another. We follow our system, they follow theirs. When we focus on the differences, a relatively short stretch of land or water starts to look like a yawning chasm. But when we look at each other as individuals and focus on the similarities, that "chasm" is actually a very short distance. Less than a hundred miles. Musicians - especially jazz musicians, whose craft is in many ways an improvised form of communication - understand this principle inherently, perhaps better than any politician or diplomat could ever hope to.
