We start with 21st century music from guitarist Dave Stryker (coming to Southern Louisiana in October; heads up, y'all:), Geri Allen, David Weiss, Zhenya Strigalev and the Big Sandy and His Fly-Rite Boys. It's pianist Bill Evans birthday. Were he alive today, he would be celebrating his 90th. We have him at the Vanguard with his last trio, in a duo with guitarist Jim Hall, and a neglected session with flautist Jeremy Steig. We finish our 50th anniversary of Miles Davis' "Bitches Brew" with the two tracks from the 3rd (and last) day of recording for the session. One is a continuous performance and the other has 19 edits (with no overdubs). Along the way Stan Getz with Jimmy Rowles, Hammond B-3 from Larry Young, and Marty Ehrlich on tenor. Enjoy the ride!

September 50th anniversary Blue Notes next week.

Thanks to our most active listeners of the week in: Strasbourg (France), Kiev (Ukraine), Loberia (Argentina) & Sendai (Japan)

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
