This week, we finish tracking Volume 1 of the Blue Note Review, which is now out-of-print. Volume 2 just arrived and you can listen for it in the months ahead. We also feature selections from Sonny Rollins at his first full recording date as a leader from December 1951. But, of course, there's more—see for yourself, below. Enjoy the show! Next week, it's a February 1969 Blue Note 50th anniversary recording and BN-6 from Sidney Bechet.

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!
