Dear All About Jazz Readers,

If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.

You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

The much-acclaimed Australian saxophonist Sandy Evans' passion for combining jazz improvisation and Indian music continues unabated on her latest recording Bridge of Dreams. She brought together some top musicians from India, including the incredible vocalist Shubha Mudgal, Sandy's frequent accompanist tabla player Bobby Singh and the Sirens Big Band from Sydney for the project. Recently, the project was premiered live on stage at the Sydney Festival. Also in this episode, trumpeter Stephanie Richards steps in front of a quartet for a terrific release, Take The Neon Lights. It's a paean to her home city of New York, and a definite contrast to her previous solo recording. You'll also hear some music from one of Poland's new leading lights, pianist Kuba Plużek and quartet for the first time on One Man's Jazz, plus a goodbye to one of the most innovative clarinetists, Perry Robinson, who died in December
