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...
