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.

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!
