We begin the 720th Episode with storied saxophonist Kenny Garrett with a track off his 2021 release Sounds from the Ancestors. This episode also features new music from Russell Ferrante, Papo Vazquez, Maria Grand and Yoonmi Choi. We give a fitting send off to a great friend of Neon Jazz and a wonderful friend from childhood in Mr. Bill Denny with a Frank Sinatra tribute. Finally, we say so long and thank you to George Mraz. Dig this new hour of jazz, my friends.
