I promised to play more from that fabulous 1968 Houston Person release this weekso yeh, that's here (Soul Dance, Prestige 7621) with Boogaloo Joe Jones). It's criminally out-of-print, as is our Carmen McRae centennial feature (the classic As Time Goes By on JVC, issued for 'a minute' as an LP on Catalyst in the US many years ago). We almost got a migraine piecing together our Charlie Parker 100th birthday segment with recordings from Nov 26, 1945 (you'll hear why if you listen!). Savoy had a unique way of issuing these sides in the 78 rpm era! Then we could relax with our Sonny Rollins celebration (Volume 2 on Blue Note). Along the way, Bobby Hutcherson, McCoy Tyner, Dizzy Gillespie and gorgeous 21st century music from violinist Gabe Terracciano, Vanessa Rubin, altoist David Bixler and pianist Aaron Goldberg with the YES! Trio. Enjoy the show!

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
