Listeners' favorites this week from shows 381 to 390! Lots of 'pop' covers tickled your fancy this time around, along with a trip to New Orleans and the usual dose of grits & gravy. Enjoy the show. And, no, we haven't abandoned Blue Note 50th anniversary salutes (yet:); they will be featured next week. Thanks for listening and your support.
Saluting our top listeners of the week in: Strasbourg (France), Mar Del Plata (Argentina), Kiev (Ukraine), Belgrade (Serbia) & Baton Rouge (US)
Jelly Roll Morton "That's Like It Ought To Be" from The Jelly Roll Morton Centennial (Bluebird) 00:00

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.
