Trios and quartets dominate this episode: three-quarters of the playlist are from groups of that size. Featured is German saxophonist Philipp Gropper and his quartet Philm with music from his new album Consequences. Another quartet heard for the first time is Ornicar from France, and The OGJB Quartet is back. Of the threesomes, first timers are Gentiane MG from Montreal, Milton Man Gogh from Australia, Alexi Tuomarila from Finland, New York's Caroline Davis, Polish bassist Franciszek Pospieszalski, and England's free-jazz saxophonist Rachel Musson and pianist Liam Noble. And yes, as a matter of fact, the opening tune is the ringtone on my cell.

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.
