Dear All About Jazz Readers,

If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.

You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

Putting a show together, I sometimes amuse myself by posing programmatic 'problems' that help break my usual routines. To wit: we offer you two pairs of disparate covers of Wayne Shorter and Thelonious Monk tunes during the first hour and play word games with tune titles in the second hour.

The 2018 Downbeat Readers' Poll selected the Chick Corea/Steve Gadd collaboration as Album of the Year, and we feature a pair of tracks. And there's more Sonny Rollins with Miles; this time from a 1951 Birdland airshot.

More? Of course! Hit 'play' and 'lesdoodis'!

R.I.P. Nancy Wilson (February 20, 1937 -December 13, 2018)
