We may be in lock-down mode but oustading jazz releases keep coming out as if nothing were of the COVID and the social distancing, bringing us much needed relief. One more reason to pay tribute to today's artists and to encourage everyone to support the music scene by purchasing music directly from the musicians and labels that make them.

An hour of incredible collaborations, music for the dreamworld and from some of today's best trumpet players.

Happy listening!
