On this show I am featuring three new albums from the new off shoot label of Screwgun Records called 9Donkeys. The music is from Tim Berne's Broken Shadows and Adobe Probe groups plus some duo work with Matt Mitchell. All three albums feature live recordings from the vaults.

There are also examples of some of the excellent groundbreaking music coming out of the independently run Small Scale Music label, as well as exciting new releases from Bob Gluck, Alexander Hawkins and Tomeka Reid and the single from the forthcoming album from Jorma Tapio & Kaski.

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.
