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.
