When a highly respected saxophonist like David Binney recommends a young up-and-coming musician, I tend to pay attention. Los Angeles trombonist Logan Kane and his Nonet live up to the tip on his new Nope, Science, one of the featured new releases hitting this week. Also of great interest are albums from the much-admired trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire, Swiss alto player Omri Ziegele with Han Bennink in tow, guitarist Adam Caine, drummer Mike Pride with saxophonist Jonathan Moritz, and another duo, Spanish free jazz pianist Agusti Fernandez and Lithuanian saxophonist Liudas Mockūnas. Things wrap up with an intriguing trio from Romania led by pianist Mircea Tiberian. There's lots of good music from start to finish in this episode.
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.
