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.

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!
