And best kept jazz secrets is one of the themes of this episode. We also look into the world of accomplished jazz cats Chris Potter, George Shearing and Clark Terry. One of our persistent themes is profiling the modern jazz musician for insights into the music they create and during this episode we look into the life of Colin Stranahan and Ted Quinlan. Dig it...

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.
