We begin the 714th Episode of Neon Jazz with veteran jazz artist Doug Beavers. We also present a track from John Coltrane off his LP Crescent that inspired Doug journey into jazz. We also take a listen to a number artists releasing new music in 2021 including Yaala Ballin, Steven Feifke, Jihee Heo and Perry Smith. The final cut on this hour comes from a legend who fueled many careers in the late great Michael Brecker. The theme is new jazz. It's fresh and going strong in 2021.
