Sam Sadigursky is a special guest for this go-round, and the talk ranges from his pledge of fidelity to the clarinet, to his experiences in Darcy James Argue's Secret Society, to his lengthy tour of duty in a big time Broadway production, to his thoughts about bass-clarinet specialist Jason Stein. After he escapes the bastards' clutches, talk turns to two brand new releases and then settles, as it should, on Curtis Mayfield's fashion choices in Pop Matters.

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.
