We begin the 593rd Episode of Neon Jazz with singer Stacey Kent. From there, we take a listen to the cool of Art Blakey, Billy Taylor and Mark E. Walker. Over the course of the show we profile the mighty Dayramir Gonzalez, Chris Jentsch and listen to a new cat on the NYC scene known as Fumi Tomita. We finish things off with style with Frank Kimbrough doing his take on Mr. Thelonius Sphere Monk.

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!
