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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
