Neon Jazz has spent the last three months interviewing jazz musicians from around the globe on how they are dealing with this global pandemic. This week we open with a trumpeter that has deep Kansas City roots and now resides in Paris. Hermon Mehari released his new album A Change for the Dreamlike and we profile it. We also look into new music from Tom Wright, Mike Casey and Jason Palmer. Enjoy the jazz, my friends.

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.
