This show marks the 20th anniversary of One Man's Jazz which began its radio journey on May 1, 1999 at CKUW 95.9 FM in Winnipeg, eventually shifting to extraterrestrial Taint Radio in 2012. Rather than just play something from my favourite recording list for each of those twenty years (that was too easy), I decided to head for the playlists and just pluck out one track from all the tunes played in each year, starting with 1999's Peter Epstein and ending with a pair of new releases for 2019 from bassist Kenneth Jimenez and the AACM Great Black Music Ensemble. Maybe we should subtitle this show not quite ancient to the future. There are a few stories too; I couldn't resist.

No special ceremonies, no speeches, no tears, no balloons and no cake (no cake???), just some great music. I hope you enjoy this show, as much as I have enjoyed doing them for the past twenty years. Thanks for listening, by the way, whether one show or many.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
