Monash University in Melbourne, Australia is the home of the Sir Zelman Cowen School Of Music. It's an excellent program that believes in challenging the students. One of the ways it does that is to bring in internationally recognized artists to perform and work directly with the students. This episode presents some of those Monash sessions. Guitarist Ben Monder and trumpeter Ralph Alessi traveled from the USA while Sydney's acclaimed saxophonist Sandy Evans joined her friend, the much praised pianist from MelbourneAndrea Kellerfor their session. That's the feature in this episode along with a new album from tenor man Rich Halley and his NY ensemble, albums from Boomslang Records, and South Africa's SPAZA.
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.
