In the late seventies and early eighties, Susan and Jim Neumann helped keep the be-bop flame burning by starting the boutique Beehive Records label. They featured middle-aged boppers left behind by fusion frenzy who just wanted to record some solid blowing datesand one semi-forgotten vocalist who made his final great recording for the label... and captured Clint Eastwood's heart doing so. For pop matters, things take a swerve for the jazzy when Mike discusses a live Kurt Elling show in detail. Did it make his dreams come true or not? Listen and find out.

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
