Showtime, don't ya know? Jazzmeia Horn was scheduled to perform in Baton Rouge recently, but the gig got 'coronaed.' So, we do a mini-concert here, and hope she can reschedule when this plague dissipates. Shoot, they even cancelled the St. Patrick's Day parade here; so you know this is serious business. We also continue centennial celebrations for Dave Brubeck (Time Further Out) and Charlie Parker (recreating a Savoy 45rpm release). More Sonny Rollins, too: this time with Monk from the famous Brilliant Corners sessions on Riverside. Along the way, 21st century music from the Yes! Trio, Reggie Pittman, Christine Corvisier and Peter Lin (check out his drummer Nic Cacioppo, whew!), as well as classics from Tony Williams, Ray Anderson, Dave Douglas, Johnny Hodges, and Ralph Peterson. Enjoy the show! We did....

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.
