A busy year for the prolific Tim Berne continues with the release of live music from his Snakeoil band and a fascinating duo with Mark Helias. There is further live music from the stellar line up of Sylvie Courvoisier, Ken Vandermark, Nate Wooley and Tom Rainey. Also a brand new album from Chet Doxas with brother Jim Doxas and the third release from pianist Will Bonness, which focuses on contrast, texture, and epic storytelling. There's also an archive cut from Wadada Leo Smith and the New Dalta Akhri quintet from 1979.

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.
