As the world continues to change, we start with a song from Arturo O'Farrill off his new CD Four Questions to keep the conversation on Black Lives Matter moving forward. We also focus on new music and conversations from jazz artists during the COVID-19 pandemic world of no live jazz with Senri Oe, Lara Driscoll, Aubrey Johnson and Alex Goodman. Stay safe out there and keep on enjoying the jazz during this surreal time on planet Earth.

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.
