Chalk up another great recording from saxophonist and composer James Brandon Lewis. Jesup Wagon for Tau Forms marks another step on what seems to be a steady climb to the top of current saxophonists. Like last year's great Live At Willisau, JBL has drummer Chad Taylor with him along with Kirk Knuffke, Christopher Hoffman and the great William Parker. They are the Red Lily Quartet. Another rising star is trumpeter Jaimie Branch. Her Fly Or Die quartet are captured live on her latest and it's a sizzling set of music. Also featured is Chicago saxophonist Dave Rempis with The Co-Vid Tapes. It's not a typical saxophone recording, as rarely Rempis recordings are, but it is representative of what many artists have had to do during this pandemic to keep sharp. Also new in this episode, music from Chris Potter, Hank Roberts, A.R.K. from Germany, and Ras Moshe Burnett with Dafna Naphtali.

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!
