Dear All About Jazz Readers,

If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.

You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

Orange and blue are two complimentary colors that go especially well together. They are also the colors that have inspired the music featured in this episode of Mondo Jazz, to celebrate Radio Free Brooklyn's move into its gorgeous orange and blue studio.

This episode of Mondo Jazz also features an exclusive interview with the leaders of Microscopic Septet, The Jazz Passengers, and the Kamikaze Ground Crew, Phillip Johnston, Gina Leishman, Doug Wieselman and Roy Nathanson who speak about music, friendship, and what it means to have grown up, musically, in the New York Downtown Scene of the '80s.
