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...

Jonathan Finlayson's music has clarity of sound and atmosphere and, at the same time, keeps you on the edge of your seat. The American trumpeter knows how to make challenging music accessible, which he has already shown in the bands of Steve Coleman, Henry Threadgill and Steve Lehman. Like their music, his own compositions are also full of surprising twists and turns. On his most recent album, Moving Still, he establishes a logical connection between jazz, the rhythms of Ghana as well ass Afro-Cuban melodies and counterpoint.

Sicilian Defense, the name of Jonathan Finlayson's band, originates from chess, another important source of inspiration for the musician who became the number 1 Rising Star Trumpeter in the 2014 Downbeat Critics Polls.

Personnel: Jonathan Finlayson trumpet and composition, Miles Okazaki guitar, Andy Milne piano, John Hébert double bass, Craig Weinrib drums
