Art Blakey turns 100 in October. He's too important to have to wait till then. So, we've got 3 more tracks from Bu as well as a 'pre-Bu' segment of tunes associated with or inspired by the great drummer. Our chronological Sonny Rollins celebration continues with a 4tet session with Monk @ the 88s. Along the way: Huntertones in the trees; Jamie Cullum in never never land; Booker Ervin & Ralph Peterson at full throttle; swing from Charlie Christian @ Minton's & Diz & Roy; concluding with wisdom from Dave Frishberg. You will enjoy the show; so hit the button!
Saluting our top listeners of the week in: Strasbourg (France), Gdansk (Poland), Berlin (Germany) & Chicago (US)!

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
