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...

The long-time member of Conan O'Brien's Basic Cable Band Mr. Jerry Vivino kicks off this week's episode with music from his latest album Coast to Coast recorded with his good friend and legendary jazz cat Bucky Pizzarelli. From there, we move into another great album by the Organ Jazz Trio, a Kansas City institution led by the hearty leader Kenny Lovern. From there, the hour goes on with the dynamic and legendary duo of Thad Jones and Mel Lewis off their 1969 classic album Central Park North. We also have a friend of the show and a great cat from Canada in Al Muirhead with the song Four Brothres off his latest 2018 CD Undertones.

As this hour gains steam, we visit the New York Standards Quartet and we profile the legendary Fletcher Henderson from the Ken Burns Jazz Documentary in 2000. We round the hour up with the one and only Quincy Jones and we talk the Netflix documentary on his life.
