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...

Roy Hargrove's loss this year was especially difficult on the jazz community, so Pat and Mike devote a whole episode to his work. We didn't get to his electric period in this one, but look at three acoustic leader dates as well as an album where he takes the "Miles" slot in a Herbie Hancock led tribute group. We also peek in on his contributions to D'Angelo's influential album Voodoo. Musings about the young lions movement, nineties style jazz production, and the glory days of the "big label" push for jazz, ensue.
