Bassist Bruno Raberg's reputation as a very creative cat is reinforced by his new release, The Prospector, an excellent album with saxophonist Allan Chase and drummer Austin McMahon. Find it on Orbis, Bruno's own label. Speaking of labels, vibraphonist Matt Moran started Diskonife as a new creative outlet for independent releases, which has launched with releases by him and by saxophonist Peter Hess. This week there's also a ton of great stuff from European artists, including from SPIME 2019, a gathering of European improvisational collectives. Top that off with a fine new New York group, Orientation of We (bassist Max Johnson, saxophonist James Brandon Lewis, trumpeter Michael Irwin and drummer Joe Hertenstein), making their debut, and you'll find plenty of interesting stuff.

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.
