From a big name in the world of Canadian jazz, we go up north to begin episode 613 with the great PJ Perry presenting material off his new album The Quiet Room. From there, we pay respects to the great Charlie Parker in Kansas City during the Bird Celebration during August for what would have been his 99th year on earth. We hear from the past and present cats to celebrate his honor and those in the world of Kansas City jazz. From there, we hear some fresh new sounds from Kiefer and Victor Gould. In honor of 9/11, we wrap it all up with the master Sonny Rollins.

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.
