Etienne Charles plays Baton Rouge and, to mark the occasion, we track several selections from his forthcoming release, Carnival: The Sound of a People, Vol. 1. We also continue with our Sonny Rollins chronological celebration with tracks from his collaboration with the Modern Jazz Quartet. Pois não! There's more—classics & 21st century music. Enjoy the show!

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
