Dear All About Jazz Readers,

If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.

You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

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.
