This show brings together an eclectic mix of releases from 2019.
The featured album is from exciting Spanish guitarist Arnua Gil whose debut bridges the divide between rock and jazz with ease.
There is also music from Ken Vandermark's first large ensemble recording in more than four years. The band is called Entr'acte and is a veritable "who's who" of the most interesting and important musicians currently working in the field of experimental music.
Eri Yamamoto's new one on Aum Fidelity has transcended jazz, classical and folk forms in creating her new work : for jazz trio & 50-member choir.
There are a pair of tracks each from cornetist/trumpeter Thomas Heberer and saxophonist Paul Dunmall. The former is in duo and quartet settings. and the latter in a trio with two different rhythm sections.
In between music that leans towards the avant-garde whilst embracing new techniques and approaches.

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.
