Dear All About Jazz Readers,

If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.

You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

This week's episode begins with the exceptional saxophonist Javon Jackson and music off his latest CD For You. The show revolves around Javon's long jazz journey as we play cuts from legends like Sonny Stitt and Art Blakey. The show goes on to highlight new music from Stefon Harris, Javier Santiago and Freckle Legend.

We also feature music by veterans like Ken Wiley and Christian McBride and their newest CDs. This hour will come to a rousing close with a song from Jonathan Finlayson's new release Three Times Round.
