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...

This week we start with the Motor City and veteran bassist Robert Hurst with musif off his latest CD Black Current Jam. From there, we get in some Modern Jazz Quartet, Kris Bowers off the "Green Book" Soundtrack and the great Steve Davis with music from his new album Correlations. We profile Kansas City trumpeter Alex Abamovitz with Fountain City Jive and look into the worlds of both Ben Bierman and Jim Brenan. This full hour of music comes to a close with a dandy via Paul Bascomb.
