This week we open with the great Drummer Jerome Jennings, a musician who has a keen eye on the social issues and political environment of today, and a cut off his new album Solidarity. We also visit the world of The Bad Plus with a song off their newest and highly anticipated album called Activate Infinity. We also were fortunate to hear from Philadelphia musician Lucas Brown with his album Skyviews and Italian jazz cat Roberto Tola. We profile the great Toronto group TuneTown and wrap all things up the North Texas University band The One O'Clock Lab Band. Plenty of new cats on this hour and that's the way we like it around here.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
