In this episode of Mondo Jazz we preview unreleased music as well as interesting releases that will be published in the coming months. We also look into Swiss, Finnish, and French approaches to quintessentially United Statesian music genres like Hip-Hop, Jazz and Americana, which travelled to Europe and got local. We also feature Darrell Grant's and Herbie Hancock's tributes to Martin Luther King. Last but not least, a preview of the intriguing Ned Rothenberg, Erik Friedlander, Ami Yamasaki live debut performance at Planeta in NYC.

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.
