Contrasting alto saxophonists highlight this episode. Toronto's Brodie West leads his quintet through a quirky and edgy set of tunes from Clips, while Sweden's Anna Hogberg leads a very free blowing group called Attack, and that's exactly what she does on her recent Lena. Another saxophonist, American Seth Trachy, brought along his mentor, the very respected Miguel Zenon for his new album which uses African Pygmy rhythms as the basis for his compositions. You'll also hear a couple of great Finnish bands, recorded live in concert, and the veteran keyboardist from England, Veryan Weston drops a tune from his new Crossings. There's plenty more great music for you as well.

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.
