As often happens on this show, the recordings we featured emanate from many countries, and this episode is no different. New releases include those by Japanese drumming legend Sabu Toyozumi (recorded in The Philippines), Sweden's Dark Horse, French drummer Raphaël Pannier, Finland's Oaagaada, Italy's Ground 71, and Swiss vocalist Lucia Cadotsch. American baritone saxophonist Josh Sinton gets back to the wars with his trio What Happens in a Year, trumpeter Alex Massa focuses on water issues in his new release, while the band Quintopus continues the improvisational style it has adopted. Much more of course, with a big finish: a revisit to Chicago's bristling saxophonist Isaiah Lewis Collier 's albums.
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.
