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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
