This week we look at the variety that can be found in the World of Jazz as exemplified by the amazing new collaboration with operatic baritone Steven Herring on the new album from Kirk Knuffke, which we contrasted with the ground breaking avant-garde work of featured artist Ingrid Laubrock and with the traditional stylings of another featured player Jerry Bergonzi. In between a selection of new releases and archive cuts from the Greenleaf label.

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.
