There are more 2020 favourites scattered throughout this playlist (my choices at the One Man's Jazz website), but some excellent new trio and duo releases are highlights. Ben Monder, Tony Malaby and Tom Rainey gathered at one of Monder's residency-sessions at the 55 Bar and the three-part album is split over this show and the next two. The explosive Austrian trio Interzone, led by trumpeter Mario Rom, celebrate their tenth year as a group with Eternal Fiction, while Finnish saxophonist Pauli Lyytinen steps out of his usual zone for a fully improvised session with the Polish rhythm section of Maciej Garbowski - Ivann Cruz Quartet and Krzysztof Gradziuk. Duet releases debuting this week come the French pair of saxophonist Alexandra Grimal and percussionist Edward Perraud and the father-son hook-up of bassist Michael Formanek and saxophonist Peter Formanek.

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!
