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...

These days touring is maybe the most critical aspect of a jazz musician's ability to not only promote one's music but also to survive financially. Toronto drummer Ethan Ardelli is proof of that pudding. He's taken his fine quartet and hit the road across Canada for the month of November—23 events from coast to coast—and will be promoting his debut album The Island of Form. It's a feature of this episode of One Man's Jazz.

You'll also hear tunes from new releases by Jonathan Finlayson, David Binney, the Improvision Quartet from Poland and Norway's Master Oogway (the creator of Kung Fu from Kung Fu Panda). Prepare for chaos!
