This week I have a selection of new releases from Europe with music from Finland with Jorma Tapio, from Norway with Oyvind Skarbo and friends, and Russian jazzers BROM. I am also focusing on an excellent solo album from Italian saxophonist Felice Clemente. There's some Latin sounds from Bocana and John Finbury and to round things off some new singles and two cuts from Sun Ra And His Arkestra live at Fondation Maeght in Saint-Paul-de-Vence.

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.
