This week the show is all about the vibraphone or vibes with a variety of music demonstrating the power and wonder of that singular instrument. Jazz history is full of great players from Milt Jackson through to Gary Burton but I'm going to look at some modern practitioners on this show, One of those is Dan McCarthy with this weeks featured album City Abstract.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
