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...

Sco in Baton Rouge, Okazaki vs. Monk, Sax-less Trane covers & more

Marc Cohn By

Sign in to view read count
This week we fired up the locals for the super John Scofield Baton Rouge concert on October 4th; did a Miles Okazaki/Thelonious Monk compare & contrasts with two of Monk's most challenging compositions; played sax-less Trane covers from guitarist Simone Manunza & Jessica Williams solo at the 88s; and spun some 21st century jazz that caught our fancy.

All of that, while Lady J was on the other side of the glass waiting for a slow dance. We could not refuse!

Enjoy the show & tell your friends...
