This week our playlist is bursting at the seams with great projects, several of which explore the renewed interest in what many like to call 'spiritual jazz,' from Roberto Ottaviano to Dwight Trible's Cosmic Vibrations and Matthew Halsall out of the increasingly interesting Manchester jazz scene. The rest of the playlist alternates forward looking projects like the welcome return of Craig Taborn's Junk Magic, Supersense the multisensory project by Stephanie Richards with Jason Moran, or Torbjorn Zetterberg's Den Stora Frågan, with powerful straight-ahead releases like the debut stunners by Immanuel Wilkins and the Doxas Brothers. In the middle of it all, a feel-good jazz-meets-soul of Curtis Mayfield by William Parker and Leena Conquest with the help of a choir of 90 kids from Paris' suburbs.

Happy listening!

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
