Off a brand new album called 400 by veteran jazz bass cat Avery Sharpe, we charge straight on into a new episode of Neon Jazz. We continue the music with a look into the world of Matt Slocum, Curtis Nowosad and Brad Turner with new projects and revelations from their music minds. We also pepper in some John Dokes, Bill Evans, Louis Russell and Harry James. We conclude our hour of jazz from a strong, wise and gifted Kansas City vocalist Molly Hammer.

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!
