Sometimes in this business, you get so saturated with new music that your ears are paralyzed. The blues to the rescue, including Dexter Gordon singing with his voice, not just the saxophone. We also salute and celebrate Maria Schneider's receipt of a Jazz Masters' Award this spring from the National Endowment for the Arts. The first 2019 segment of our Sonny Rollins retrospective precedes Maria, with the 1951 Dig sessions with Miles. Then we turn reflective at this start of another year. Enjoy the show, tell your friends—G&M, better than chicken soup for what ails you...

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
