This week we open the show with a very seasoned jazz saxophonist that recently moved to Kansas City, Adam Larson. From there we move to the UK scena and dig into new sounds from the Black Lab Beats and put a focus on great new jazz being released from the likes of Hendrik Meurkens, Peter Hand and Marc Copland. We round out this hour of music with a look into new material from Australian-born jazz guitarist Nicholas Vardanega and Poet/Singer Lisa B. Dig it...

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.
