Dear All About Jazz Readers,

If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.

You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

From the talented collective Sammy Miller and the Congregation out of Los Angeles, California, we start a new hour of jazz with episode 594. Over the hour, we hear from some exceedingly cool cats like Duke Ellington, Hugh Masekala, Fess Williams and Harry James. A look into the music and words of the book Jazz on a Saturday Night and a deeper look into the musicians Allison Au, James Suggs and Doug MacDonald highlight this show.
