Compiling a radio playlist is both incredibly satisfying and quite frustrating. Two hours are so quick to fill and one has to often leave out a great number of tracks that would deserve attention but, for a reason or another (length, similarities to other selection, need for variety and flow etc.), don't find a natural spot in the playlist... To partially remedy this situation, we are starting a 'companion mixtape' series to share more great music, in addition to that which is included in our regular show.

Enjoy these additional cuts, written or performed by, and featuring, Kenny Kirkland, which showcase his remarkable skills as composer, leader, sideman and accompanist (check out his work with Carmen Lundy!) in both straight-ahead and fusion projects.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
