Dear All About Jazz Readers,

If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.

You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

The legend of the jazz drum kit and a survivor Ralph Peterson opens this week's episode of Neon Jazz, along with a few of his mentors, Art Blakey and Walter Davis Jr.. From there, we throttle into a new crop of tunes from some great jazz cats like James Suggs, Greg Murphy and Hilary Gardner. Then, we dig the unique sounds of Chicago-strong Joe Policastro with his Trio on a new cut from his CD Nothing Belongs Here. Then, we wrap the hour up with The Duke and Something Blue to keep your jazz fresh and fluid.
