The great New York-born, Chicago-based jazz guitarist Bobby Broom starts this week's episode of Neon Jazz with a tasty cut off his new CD Soul Fingers. As the hour moves forward, we focus on a musician that has played a great influence on Bobby, Walter Bishop, Jr., and music from modern bassist Alexander Claffy 2.
There is plenty more as this hour moves forward. We take a look into the world of Adi Meyerson on the bass and hear a great story about a live show by McCoy Tyner that she attended. We also look into the music of Martin Nevin, the great Richie Cole and Italian Violinist Anais Drago & the Jellyfish' take on the music of Frank Zappa, before closing with the New Orleans Jazz Vipers.

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.
