One of the finest recordings released during early 2021 was by R+R+Now Live led by Robert Glasper and Derrick Hodge. From there, we play some catch up looking into the voices and music captured during the 2020 pandemic jazz year. It includes Edward Partyka, Cathlene Pineda, Frank Basile and Stephen Menold. We say good-bye to Joe Miquelon who was one of the nicest jazz musicians and educators in Kansas City. Finally, we wrap up the 693rd Episode of Neon Jazz with the ultra hip tune "Sunshine Superman" with the duo of Lonnie Smith and Mr. Iggy Pop. Enjoy the surprises...

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!
