Kicking off the 623rd Episode of Neon Jazz is a towering figure in the world of Latin Jazz, Mr. Oscar Hernandez who teamed up with Alma Libre with a cut off his latest album Love the Moment. From there, we hear from some of the biggest names in jazz, from Dave Miller and his trio to Spirit Fingers, we have some fresh sounds on this hour of music. We also profile the new works of Laurence Hobgood, Joshua Jern and Teymur Phell. NYC-based drummer Matt Kane came through Kansas City for a performance and we profile the show. Finally, we bring things back to Kansas City with a new track via Bobby Watson teamed up with Gary Bartz and Vincent Herring on a recording saluting Charlie Parker at 100.

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.
