There was so much good music that came out in 2020, we are still catching up. The 691st Episode of Neon Jazz begins with veteran drummer Steve Fidyk with music off his new CD Battle Lines. We also look into some quality music from Stephane Spira, Mark Masters, Gregory Porter and Benny Benack III. Finally, we say good-bye to a few jazz warriors and wonderful people in both Chris Barber and Ralph Peterson. Enjoy the show, my friends.
