Gary Bartz kicks off the 585th episode of Neon Jazz with Heavy Blue. From there, we profile cats who have been a part of his world and growth like Miles Davis and Charlie Parker. Then, we get into a host of new and old tracks from the likes of Quinsin Nachoff, Chet Baker, Iris Ornig and many more. We pay tribute to both Ethel Ennis and Henry Butler for their huge contributions to the world of jazz. Finally, we end things with a Kansas City flavor with a tune from the Kansas City Chiefs band as a fitting end to a Championship year.

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.
