Mike is from the Chicago-land area, Pat spent his salad days in Hyde Park—maybe the bastards are a bit biased, but they love talking about the Windy City. It doesn't hurt that it has a long, noble, somewhat left-of-center history concerning jazz. Anyway, this time they explore the work of a couple of tenor titans, little-known outside of the Midwest, along with an out-jazz supergroup and a jazz vocalist who is very well-known indeed. Quick look-ins at Father John Misty's latest and the "Esher" demos for the Beatles' "White Album" comprise pop-matters.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
