When you're hot, you're hot, and that's the kind of year saxophonist James Brandon Lewis is having. He's been a part of several fine albums this year, and his recent quartet release, Molecular, for Intakt Records is a further step on his path to the top. He demonstrates his concept of "Molecular Systematic Music." Mary Halvorson always seems to be having a good year, and her new one with Code Girl lives up to her standard. She's incorporating spoken recitations of her poetry on this one. Keyboard guru Craig Taborn's Junk Magic has a new one out, and another fine pianist, the late Gianni Lenoci's likely final recording is available now. Wild Geese features the bass of Pasquale Gadaleta and the drums of the iconic Ra-Kalam Bob Moses. And you don't want to pass on the latest Tim Berne's latest Snakeoil; Tim's been pumping out albums this year too. Lots more for you, as well, including a fiery track from Southeast Asia by Sabu Toyozumi. Hope you like the show.

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
