Everyone's favourite drummer Dan Weiss created quite a stir with the debut album of his band Starebaby. That ball keeps rolling with their sophomore release, Natural Selection. And what else could you expect from a band with Matt Mitchell, Craig Taborn, Ben Monder and Trevor Dunn? The album rocks! Friend and mentor become playing partners on the new release by pianists Angelica Sanchez and Marilyn Crispell. There's a unity there that's quite special. Another drummer, this time from FranceYves Rousseaudraws on his early rock and roll influences for his new Fragments, while trumpeter Stephanie Richards lets the sense of smell determine the music on her new Supersense, but you'll have to buy the CD to get the scratch & sniff card to "smell" the special scents along with the music. Much more for you as well. Enjoy.

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.
