We're going everywhere this week. We offer you twenty-first century music from Joshua Redman, Michael Sarian, magnificent Vanessa Perica, Nicole Mitchell and Manu Katche. Roll up the rug for Benny Goodman's trio, Fletcher Henderson and Rex Stewart(with Johnny Hodges on soprano and Harry Carney on clarinet). Our Charlie Parker @ 100 celebration continues as we start to revive the Dial recordings. Anthony Braxton is featured in two settings: with Dave Brubeck (for his centennial, along with Lee Konitz) and with Chick Corea (an August 50th anniversary Blue Note recording—not the wrong October recording date on the album jacket; confirmed by Mr. Cuscuna). So far as I know, that recording (Circling In) was never reissued on CD and has been generally unavailable since its release in the mid-1970s. If you're a fan of the Circle band, you might want to check this out. Along the way, Eddie Harris and Kenny Garrett. Enjoy the show.

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.
