June 2019 was one of those months with 5 Saturdays, so we got to play around with the music more. As usual, a mix of newer music from the likes of Theo Hill, Kate Reid and Anat Cohen—the latter two duos with Fred Hersch on piano. Then we have two, yes two, "compare and contrast": one funky and one 'high brow.' Clarinet work by Don Byron leads to Jelly Roll Morton (trios with Barney Bigard) leads to Air (doing Jelly Roll) and then a walk down Bourbon Street (It makes sense to us!). We celebrate Sonny Rollins with side two of Worktime, which you really need to own physically and digitally. Along the way: John Scofield, Keith Jarrett, Phil Woods with Johnny Griffin, Tony Williams (does Tony borrow from "Red Top" and "Watermelon Man" on this one?) and Lou Donaldson. Enjoy the show!

Thanks to G&M's most active listeners of the week in: Athens (Greece), Chicago, New York City and Tampa (US), as well as Kitamoto & Tokyo (Japan)!

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
