Faced with a New Year's Eve show, this one was extended by two hours, and the last three veered off into dancin' territory. There were some new releases sampled though. In hour one, Finnish pianist Kari Ikonen displays his considerable talents and his "maqiano" for playing Arabic half-tones, on his solo excursion Impressions, Improvisations & Compositions, and Swedish multi-reedist Alberto Pinton checked in with his new All The Difference. In the second hour, you'll hear more solo piano from Matt Piet's impressive and personal Pentimento, before some other program hosts from Taint Radio contribute some tunes. I had asked them to choose something that represented the year just passed. After that, music to dance to. Thanks to all who have checked out One Man's Jazz in 2021. I wish you all peace and health.

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.
