This week we have recent music from Akiko Tsuruga (her best yet!), Pierre Dorge, Chris Rogers, Anthony Fung and Conrad Herwig. But the big news is that Bitches Brew was recorded in August, 1969 over three days. This week we offer the sessions recorded on August 19, 1969. The edit log for the title track (on our Mixcloud blog) is fascinating, as the track was 'constructed' post-production. Oh, and there's Sonny Rollins with Clifford Brown and Max Roach from 1956, including an authorized live version of "Daahoud" that has yet to appear on a CD. And, at least one of us hasn't forgotten pianist Rodney Kendrick, who did a fabulous series of late 20th century records for Verve (he's one of our rotating featured artists); please come back and give us more! Enjoy the show!

Thanks to our most active listeners of the week in Kiev (Ukraine), Athens (Greece), New York City & Koln (Germany)!

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
