Another show packed with new music with a focus on new releases from Diane Roblin and Chelsea McBride. Diane Roblin's spirited debut release Reconnect made the jazz charts and received airplay around the globe. Now she offers a second album of high energy music from the heart entitled Life Force featuring an explosive six piece band. In 2017, Toronto composer and saxophonist Chelsea McBride wowed critics and listeners alike with The Twilight Fall, the first full length album from her large ensemble Socialist Night School. Two years later, Chelsea & Co. are back with an even more ambitious follow up: Aftermath. Her album explores conflict in all its forms: macro and micro, internal and interpersonal.

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.
