This week we return with a "Bitches Brew -Day 2" and a "compare and contrast" between two Wayne Shorter tunes (from Super Nova) versus Miles Davis (from Water Babies). But of course, there's more. We moon over Anita O'Day (a centennial warmup) and go to a hotel with Kenny Clarke keeping time on a phone book for Lennie Tristano and Charlie Parker. We catch up on our features with Blue Note's blues & boogie by Pete Johnson from 1939; classics from Sonny Stitt and Horace Silver; as well as 21st century music from Rosario Bonaccorso, Don Braden, the Deep Blue Organ Trio, the The Heavyweights Brass Band, Eddie Henderson and Norma Winstone. August birthdays next week: Pops, Bird, Prez, and more!

Thanks to our best listeners of the week in Kiev, Athens (Greece), Baton Rouge, Minneapolis and Koln!

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.
