This episode has a definite focus on the progressive improvisation scene in Buenos Aires, with much of the music centering on the talented tenor player, Camila Nebbia. You'll hear music from several groups where Nebbia is a featured voice. Also debuting this week, drummer Jeff Cosgrovestill in trio modebut this time without William Parker playing bass; no fear however, as Cosgrove, Jeff Lederer and John Medeski explore Parker's extensive book, while another fine drummer, Vijay Anderson, offers Covers , an intriguing set of covers of tunes. Sale proceeds from these albums go to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. Not to be forgotten is rising star bassist Kenneth Jimenez; he's just released another for his own Irazu label called Triangulate the Landscape . Lastly, you'll want to check out music from the Infinity Gritty label: a 15-member collaboration from around the world, each with a 24-hour window to contribute their musical parts for The People of 2020.

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!
