We begin the 684th Episode of Neon Jazz with veteran jazz trombonist Steve Davis and follow that up with a song by his mentor Jackie McLean. Quite a bit of music came out during 2020 and that trend continues into 2021. We look back at music released by Walt Weiskopf, Joshua Redman and Andrea Brachfeld in 2020. Then we look into the current wave of new music this year with Cory Weeds and Mike Casey. We also say good-bye to the prolific performer Eugene Wright. Dig it....
