A look to the past and one to the future this week, as we feature a re-released 1994 album from Mark Helias and new sounds via the ears&eyes label from Ernesto Jodos, and Alex Massa. I continue my examination of recent releases from Ken Stubbs, and there's a new one on Posi-tone from Doug Webb, plus one or two other little treats in between.

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!
