Trumpeter Jaimie Branch brings her 'tude and much-praised talent to her follow-up recording to Fly or Die in Fly Or Die IIBird Dog of Paradise. Her music is even more incendiary as she turns her attention to the current state of political and social unrest in America. Also making debuts this week are the Malleus Trio from Vancouver with their second release Play, much-heralded bassist Nick Dunston, Chicago guitarist Dan Phillips' latest project, Quartet Next, and also with a deep Chicago connection, the Kobra Quartet celebrating the well-established connection between Chicago and New Orleans. Longboard, a French trio with two of that scene's finer saxophonists, Alban Darche and Matthieu Donarier, introduce their fine new album. As always, there's much more great music for you.

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.
