The pandemic goes on and jazz musicians keep on finding innovative ways to stay relevant and creative. This week we focus on some of those that are doing so by releasing new material and good thoughts into the world. We start the hour with a veteran of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra in Sherman Irby. We also hear new music from London-based Rick Simpson, Sara Serpa and The Radam Schwartz Organ Big Band.
