This week we hit the mother lode, with plenty of undiscovered, or re-discovered, jazz ore, in the form of unreleased live recordings of Joe Harriott and the re-release of Windows of the Mind by the skoonum player and Ray Charles alum Billy Brooks, respectively. Among the new gems, projects of the acoustic (Reijseger, Fraanje, Sylla [pictured]; Federica Michisanti; Roots Magic), electro-acoustic (Rob Mazurek with the Exploding Star Orchestra; Dinosaur) and electric (Guillaume Perret; Mach 6) amalgam.

And, to wrap things up, the exciting finds of two Franco-American duos of sonic surveyors featuring members of the cult band The Reyclers: Noël Akchoté, Bill Frisell and Fred Hersch, Benoit Delbecq.

Happy listening!

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
