This episode acknowledges a few of the outstanding and important female jazz improvisers who are becoming more and more prominent in the 21st century. You'll hear music from the mutual admiration duo of saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock and pianist Aki Takase, French saxophonist Alexandra Grimal displaying her talents on three differently focused albums, Estonian take-no-prisoners saxophonist Maria Faust, and Australia's much-heralded pianist Andrea Keller.
The guys are also well-represented throughout this show. Two new debut recordings come from a pair of trios: Maisemat from Finland, and Ellery Eskelin with Christian Weber and Michael Greiner.
Tune in daily to hear the internet's top jazz programs including Mondo Jazz, Jazz Bastard, World of Jazz, The Third Story, One Man's Jazz, Jazz at 100, Neon Jazz, A Broad Spectrum, Liner Notes and more.
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!
