The young and very talented Christian Sands leads off this week's episode of Neon Jazz with music from his 2018 CD Facing Dragons. We then segue into his mentor Dr. Billy Taylor and profile Massachusetts native saxophonist Kyle Nasser with music from his latest disc Persistent Fancy. The talented group of young cats manufacturing a funk/jazz sound called The Black Tie Brass debuts their latest CD Mostly Covered. And, finally, we play the tune "Flimsy" form the great British outfit The New Mastersounds off Nashvilles Sessions 2.

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!
