Dear All About Jazz Readers,

If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.

You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

Alrighty then. It's the first week of a new month. Our regulars know it's time for Blue Note 50th anniversary salutes. We've got three for you from Duke Pearson and the big band, Detroit pianist Kenny Cox, and Jack Wilson. Continuing a series we started at few months ago, we have BN-4, two sides of a 12-inch 78 from 1939. And then there's our chronological Sonny Rollins celebration with a session with Miles Davis and a handful of 21st century tracks. Enjoy the show!
