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...

[Editor's Note: Working Out to Jazz is a new All About Jazz column, devoted to providing jazz playlists for the purpose of working out. For his second installment, Chris Lawhorn's emphasis is on largely up-tempo tracks from a handful of recent releases. Check in with Working Out to Jazz regularly, for new workout music suggestions, as Chris breaks it out for you by Beats Per Minute (BPM).]

For this month's playlist, I've tried to highlight a few recent releases. With the exception of the opener, the rest of the list should have you truckin' along at a run.

On that note, Pinetop Perkins and Willie Smith will get you started with a caveat to prospective suitors; Wynton Marsalis and company expand upon his ever-increasing repertoire—this time with the aid of Richard Galliano; Denny Zeitlin checks in with a fluid, solo piece; Myron Walden continues his exploration of the tenor sax, following a conversion from alto; and Chie Imaizumi takes her 12-piece on a sultry, aptly-named jaunt:

Pinetop Perkins & Willie "Big Eyes" Smith—"Settin' It Off "—113 BPM

Wynton Marsalis Quartet and Richard Galliano—"La Foule"—130 BPM

Denny Zeitlin—"Oleo"—176 BPM

Myron Walden—"Happy Feet"—130 BPM

Chie Imaizumi—"Run For Your Life"—154 BPM
