With today's show we focus on six new albums: Dan Pitt's third release as a leader, easily his most ambitious work yet; Dave Douglas working with Australian musicians to create unique new sounds; poll-winning trombonist Michael Dease shows us what it means to "Give It All You Got" on his eighth release for Posi-Tone; alto saxophonist Steve Slagle delivers brand new sounds with his New York band; and award winning writer Iain Sinclair creates a unique marriage of spoken word and experimental music. Also, unearthed live recordings from a powerhouse band led by Tony Malaby

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!
