Modern day jazz cat James Francies starts the 586th Episode of Neon Jazz with pure gusto on a song off his CD Flight. From there, we follow a trail of good with Pat Metheny, Beaver Harris and Moppa Elliott. We put a focus on both Jason Stein and Harry Vetro during the hour. Then, we pay homage to the great Ira Gitler who left us in February 2019 and a life well lived into age 90. We take the goods of Igor Butman and Charles Mingus right on into the jazz sunset to polish off that hour of jazz that is and was and will remain.

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.
