As we continue our coverage of the COVID-19 jazz world this week we focus in particular on a group of musicians fighting for change and releasing albums during the pandemic. We begin with New York City multi-instrumentalist Daniel Bennett. We also profile John Lamkin, Pearl Django, JD Walter and Jimmy Greene. Finally, we pay tribute to the late, great Freddy Cole. Keep swinging.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
