The 4th of July

Featuring the music of Mike Holober
Duration: 5:27

On the 4th of July 2017 I started a song inspired by my childhood reminiscences of the holiday, and my conflicted feelings about the current state of our society. I promised myself I would complete it for the next July 4th so I could share. The song languished for the next few years, and was finally finished in December 2020. I hoped it would lose some relevance after the November 3rd election, but sadly it seems as relevant as ever.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
