We start this week's episode with one of the finest voices on the vibes who made his way through Kansas City in early December, Joe Locke, with a cut off his new CD Subtle Disguise. From there, we dive headlong into the music of a legend on the drums in Billy Cobham, who was the subject of a book by Brian Grueber.
We take some time to look into the piano skills of George Colligan off his new album Nation Divided. We also dive into a classic reissue LP, Joanne Grauer Introducing Lorraine Feather and we profile the great Kansas City band called RSS Trio. Finally, we polish of the hour in style with Swingin' in SeattleLive at the Penthouse 1966-67 from the great Cannonball Adderley.

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.
