Have you gotten used to writing or typing 2020 yet? I'm getting there just from filling out Gift and Messages paperwork and metadata! But let's get to the music, starting with a few 21st century tunes from Orrin Evans (putting the street beat to Ornette), trumpeter John McNeil and Russian saxophonist Makar Kashitsyn. Then Bobby Broom sets us up for our continuing Sonny Rollins celebration (the 'back half' of Saxophone Colossus).
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.
