Joined by the Slovak Radio Orchestra, composer Andy Jaffe kicks off episode 688 of Neon Jazz. From there, we delve into a host of veteran musicians who released great music during 2020 including Marilyn Crispell, Helena Kay and a few others. We sadly say goodbye to legendary jazz musician Chick Corea who passed suddenly at the age of 79. Thanks Chick and enjoy the jazz, my friends.

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!
