From a musician who has been at it for decades, though a relative newcomer to the jazz scenewe start the 718th Episode of Neon Jazz with pianist and attorney Dave Miller with a song off his new ode to the pandemic with "The Mask-erade is Over." We also profile the impressive New York City singer Hilary Kole with a song off her long-awaited 2021 album Sophisticated Lady. During this hour we also look into veterans with new material like Jason Branscum, Russ Lossing and Dennis Mitcheltree. Enjoy the music.
