|German term or phrase: Spielwiese|
|No direct context, the word just appears on its own. It is part of a jazz website.|
|English translation:possibly playing area|
It's not Spielweise (=way you play something).
Spielwiese ist not a grassy area, either. It's a word only used in the context of a space (real or imagined) where you can be creative and try out new things. Brainstorm, improvise - depending on your area of expertise here.
In the context of a jazz site, I'd go for something involving "improvisation", and while I can't really think of an ideal word, as a native speaker of German I can definitely say that Spielwiese is only used in the sense I described above - this is not a "real" geographical location we're talking about!
