This week we feature a selection of mostly new releases including the recent one from guitar legend Ray Russell who has enjoyed two distinct careers: one as an esteemed session player and award-winning film and television composer, another as an ingenious guitar experimentalist and free-thinking collaborator. There are also some new albums from the ears&eyes label and ground breaking sounds from Bonjintan and the trio of Dan Blake, Jon Irabagon and Ingrid Laubrock. Last but not least, I feature a couple of tracks showcasing the work of Fred Lonberg-Holm, and some crossover music from Bent Arcana.

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
