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...

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.
