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.

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!
