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...

Pianist Jacob Sacks summoned some of the best musicians he could find to create Fishes, his latest release for Clean Feed. Saxophonists Ellery Eskelin and Tony Malaby, bassist Michael Formanek and drummer Dan Weiss tackle Sack's quirky compositions and ideas and the result is a great recording. Also in this episode, music from a live performance by Polish saxophone great Piotr Baron, complete with an intro by the president of the Czech Republic, new tunes from Montreal's Benjamin Deschamps, and another installment in the year-long saga of Satoko Fujii's monthly birthday celebration releases. Each one has been different and this one features a tap-dancer.
