Highlights: Polish trumpeter Piotr Damasiewicz's "Polska"—very powerful music with the roaring Power Of Horns ensemble pushing Damasiewicz all the way; pianist Satoko Fujii and trumpeter Natsuki Tamura offering more proof that they are the most formidable duo in free jazz; Three-Layer Cake—the trio of bassist Mike Watt, guitarist Brandon Seabrook and drummer Mike Pride with a most unique recipe for musical mischief; and some down home New Orleans flava from saxophonist Nicole Johänntgen and Henry.

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!
