Our 673rd episode of Neon Jazz begins with the prolific pianist and composer Roger Kellaway. We talked to him about the COVID-19 lockdown as we have done with so many other musicians during 2020. Some other musicians interviewed or profiled during this hour of jazz is Scott Colley, Pete McGuiness and Robin McKelle. We pay our respects to 107-year old jazz drummer Viola Smith and listen to new music from Kansas City vocalist Molly Hammer. Cheers.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
