There's lots of new releases sampled in this episode. The critics' darlings, Thumbscrew is back and meeting their usual standards of creativity and originality. Popular French bassist Sarah Murcia sings off-beat stuff on her new Eyeballing, while the Finnish quartet Alder Ego stretches the boundaries on their latest. The pandemic looms over the new release by Michael Sarian & Matthew Putnam, as they carefully put the album together in the midst of lock-downs. Toronto guitarist Dan Pitt and the band do lots of right on their new Wrongs, Italian pianist Giancarlo Tossani and his group get deep into a William Parker-inspired vein. Add some solo guitar from Scott DuBois and a bunch more good stuff, and it's full steam ahead.

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!
