It's a mixed-bag this fortnight, with two brand new releases by up and comers (Sasha Mashin and Hubert Dupont), a theme album by a Spanish guitar-slinger, and one of many attempts to turn the jazzy music of Steely Dan into full-blown jazz. Pop matters features brief discussions of British odd-ball musicians Brian Eno and Syd Barrett, only one of whom was crazy like a fox (as opposed to just plain crazy).
Discussion of the Justin Morell's album Plays the Music of Steely Dan " (Sonic Frenzy) 4:30
Discussion of Ximo Tebar's album Celebrating the Music of Erik Satie (Xabia Jazz) 19:15
Discussion of Sasha Mashin's album Outside the Box (Rainy Days) 31:45
Discussion of Hubert DuPont's album Smart Grid (Ultrabolic) 43:30
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.
