During last month's Blue Note anniversary show we ran out of time. So this week we catch up with a Hank Mobley session for Blue Note from July 31, 1970 (well, that date was 'almost-August' anyway), after opening the show with mostly twenty-first century music. Then, it's on to Grant Green, live in Newark and Wayne Shorter's last twentieth century Blue Note date (and a Weather Report track for icing). We've also got BN-25 from James P. Johnson in our numerical retrospective of Blue Note 78s. In August 1970, Chick Corea did a handful of sessions featuring Anthony Braxton. We hope to have selections from these next week. Sometimes, our acquisition and remastering logistics get complicated. Enjoy the show!

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.
