Master drummer Andrew Cyrille turned 79 in November. His wonderful new recording Lebroba, following on the heels of his acclaimed The Declaration of Musical Independence proves age has little to do with creativity. You'll hear two tracks from the new release which features Bill Frisell and Wadada Leo Smith, another septuagenarian at peak powers.

Saxophonist Cale Brandley's name may not resonate for some, but back in 2005, he was studying jazz in New York and hooked up with the Triptych Myth Trio to record Finding Fire. That album is finally available thanks to Birdwatcher Records, and it reveals another set of recording music by Triptych Myth (Cooper-Moore piano, bassist Tom Abbs and drummer Chad Taylor) who, it had been thought, had only recorded two albums.

Also new on the show this week—John Medeski & Mad Skillet, Jason Kao Hwang's brilliant and powerful Blood, Canada's Francois Carrier and German pianist Philip Zoubek and his trio.

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
