With a legendary voice out of Cleveland, Ohio on an ablum paying full respects to Tadd Dameron, we start the 599th episode of Neon Jazz with the tune "Kitchenette Across the Hall." From there, we listen to Sarah Vaughan and hear the great Tadd Dameron with his Sextet with the tune "The Squirrel." As the hour unfolds, we look into the life and music of Canadian cat Jonathan Bauer on the horn with "Blues Funk." We also shine the spotlight on the great modern day jazz piano cat Nick Sanders with music off his newest CD Playtime 2050. Then, we scoot into some music from the Chicago Soul Jazz Collective and look into the impact they are having on the ripe modern jazz landscape. Finally, we get a bit of Pete Kelly's Big 7 and wrap it all up with Claude Bolling and his Big Band live in Paris with the rousing tune "Jazzomania."

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.
