This show honours two great figures in jazz who passed away recently. Chick Corea, an outstanding pianist and a great composer, and, Milford Graves a master percussionist, who was one of the giants of the improvised music community. I have selected music from across their respective careers as a tribute to their contribution to music.

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!
