Tao Forms is a new recording label launched in Spring 2020. Drummerimprovisercomposer Whit Dickey is both the creative director and executive producer of this fresh endeavour. Matthew Shipp's The Piano Equation was the label's inaugural release. It was followed by Expanding Light, which is the new work by Whit Dickey himself. The music is distributed by the Aum Fidelity label.
On this show I feature tracks from both of those albums as well as other music from the discographies of the four musicians playing on these releases.
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!
