This week we open with the music of veteran jazz pianist Cyrus Chestnut and a cut off his latest CD Kaleidoscope. We explore the jazz goods of Bunky Green and the great Reginald Chapman. In honor of the holiday season of 2018, we include several festive tunes to keep everything real and moving in the right direction with the music of Kansas City singer Tavis Minner, Adam Birnbaum and Lionel Loueke, before rounding things off with a bit of a dandy drenched with horns from the band Morphine.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
