First show of the month and that means September Blue Note 50th anniversary celebrations of sessions by Elvin Jones, Lee Morgan, Wayne Shorter and Candido. In honor of Blue Note's 80th anniversary we go way back in the vault to continue our numerical issue 78 rpm retrospective— this time BN-13 from Sidney Bechet. There's 21st century music from trumpeter Ingrid Jensen, UK pianist Sarah Tandy & bassist Per Mathisen (with wicked guitar work from Ulf Wakenius!). Along the way, a CTI classic from Ron Carter, Michael Brecker & Kenny Garrett. Enjoy the show!

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
