From an album that is charting very well and a man that is robust in the world of jazz these days, we begin our 614th Episode with Eric Wyatt on a new album paying the ultimate respects to his friend and hero Sonny Rollins. From there, we explore a host of cats that are putting quality tunes out in the jazz world today. From Mark Sherman to Roxy Coss. We also visit some classics from Miles Davis, Pat Metheny and Bunk Johnson. We again aim to take the listner on a sonic journey from the old days right on into the current landscape of cats around today. Dig it.

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
