From modern day saxophonist Greg Tardy, we swing into the 685th Episode of Neon Jazz. This show features a host of songs from artists who released music during 2020. We also talked to quite a few musicians during that pandemic year for their wisdom and insights into survival during an era of no live music. They include David Sills, Sara Caswell and Michelle Lordi. Finally, we say farewell to prolific composer Sammy Nestico.

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!
