Drummer-leaders comprise this round's selections, as Pat and Mike check out a couple of historical goodies and two more recent releases. What makes a good drummer-led date? Just how loud should the leader be miked? Why does Pat think the Rolling Stone's drummer is a closet masochist? The answers may surprise you. Ladytron and Stevie Ray Vaughn round out the pop matters section.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
