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

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.
