On this episode, I chat with drummer Michael Vitali, a versatile and avid practitioner of jazz who has played with household jazz names, and is also active in the world music scene. We talk about being a working musician, traveling around Europe, and other related stuff. Michael's group, the Michael Vitali Trio has a new album titled Scratching the Surface, which features Michael Vitali on drums, Justin Wert and friends on guitar, and Yuka Tadano on bass.
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.
