This week we open with the Greg Abate Quintet and then go on marking the Charlie Parker centennial. Champian Fulton has a new album honoring Bird, Birdsong and we hear her take on "Yardbird Suite." There are profiles of Kenny Washington, Daniel Hersog and Hal Galper. We also pay respects to musicians that left us in August 2020, including Charlie Persip and Steve Grossman. Long live Bird and enjoy the music.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
