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....

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
