Forty years after the death of John Coltrane in 1967, Sardinian saxophonist Enzo Favata was presented with an opportunity to assemble a group for a festival and perform their concept of what Coltrane's music might have sounded like in 2007. That's one of the featured albums in this edition of One Man's Jazz. You'll also hear tunes from the exciting international group, Orchestra Nazionale Della Luna's new album There's Still Life on Earth, plus some new hard-hitting music from Sabir Mateen, the trio of Lisa Cameron, Tom Carter and Ingebright Haker-Flaten, new Canadian quartet Songs Of Tales and the Norwegian band, Wako. And more, always more.

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
