Representing the youth movement in jazz in 2021 we kick off the 716th Episode of Neon Jazz with vocalist Anaïs Reno's "Daydream." She is followed by her hero Frank Sinatra and good line-up of jazz. It picks up with guitarist Dan Wilson, vocalist Bill Kwan and German Pianist Kilian Kemmer. We also hear the pipes of a talented LA-based singer Mara Kaye and tie it all together with a song from the saxophonist Branford Marsalis. Dig this new episode.
