Danish percussionist and drummer Marilyn Mazur has worked with some of the greatsMiles Davis, Wayne Shorter, Gil Evans, Jan Garbarekbut her latest project is unlike anything previously. She's assembled an ensemble of top women musicians from Scandinavia for her new Shamania release. It's a highlight of this episode of One Man's Jazz, and so is the return of the much-criticized Miles Davis release On the Corner. Saxophonists Jeff Coffin and Dave Liebman decided it was time to take another look at that music, not to create controversy, but to just have a great blowing session recorded live in Nashville.
Another top saxophonist, Tim Berne and multi-instrumentalist Aurora Neeland join the New Orleans duo, Trapper Keaper, for some very original music, while from Europe you'll hear Slovenia's Acamar Trio featuring saxophonist Cene Resnik and another saxophonist, Norway's Jørgen Mathisen & Instant Light.
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.
