Join me on this episode for a chat with Kristen Lee Sergeant. Her new album, Smolder, showcases her skillful use of lyrics that commands the listener to not only hear her but also see her through the speaker. Smolder features Jeb Patton on piano, Cameron Brown on bass, Jay Sawyer on drums, Ted Nash on saxophone and flute, Jody Redhage Ferber on cello, and Rogerio Boccato on percussion.

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.
