From one of the finest drummers in the jazz world, we begin the 694th Episode of Neon Jazz with Jeff Hamilton and a song off his latest album. We also profile a host of musicians releasing some quality new music including Bobby Wiens, Chico Pinheiro, David Gilmore and Charles McPherson. We say goodbye to actor and banjo player who dabbled in the jazz arts, George Segal. We wrap up this episode with the big sound of The Vanguard Jazz Orchestra. Enjoy the jazz.

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!
