This week we kick off with the timeless voice of Canadian singer Jill Barber. It's been a long time coming that we had the chance to interview Jill and it's fitting to profile her large stature that is always growing. We spend the rest of the show focusing in particular on the female voices throughout the history of jazz. From Anita O'Day to Blossom Dearie, we take a look at the vocal jazz skies. Also, Kansas City jazz pianist Jackie Myers has a brand-new CD out entitled The State of This City and we profile that superb collection of music. The rest of the hour looks at the old and new of jazz to ensure that everything makes sense.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
