Gorgeous music never stops. Case in point: the spectacularly beautiful new album by the Michael Leonhart Orchestra, The Painted Lady Suite, destined to become a reference record for large ensembles, and the latest release by Charles Lloyd and the Marvels, Vanished Gardens.

This episode of Mondo Jazz spotlights those albums and other intriguing new (and not so new) releases, and features an exclusive interview with Michael Leonhart on the making of "The Painted Lady Suite."

Happy listening!

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
