The focus of this hour is on three musicians that have new music charting well, along with the musicians that inspired them. First, we have guitarist Tomas Janzen followed by music from Charlie Parker. Secondly, we have pianist Jen Allen and music from her mentor Jackie McLean. Finally, we profile Indianapolis-based saxophonist Amanda Gardier followed by music from Cannonball Adderley.

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.
