German drummer and composer Mareike Wiening released her debut album featuring her original compositions performed by an outstanding quintet of New York improvisers on November 1st . Metropolis Paradise is dedicated to Wiening's six year residence in the Big Apple and is the featured album on this show. We also preview the excellent new album from Sanja Marcovic and a couple of tracks from the wild and wacky world of Italian jazz wunderkind Pietro Bittolo Bon, including one from his latest release. The rest of the show is mostly a selection of avant-garde/free improvisation pieces.

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.
