This episode is dominated by trios and quartets. Making her One Man's Jazz debut is English saxophonist Josephine Davies and her trio Satori with a pair of tracks from In the Corner of Clouds, while bassist Michael Formanek, no stranger to this show, debuts a new quartet with Kris Davis, Ches Smith and Tony Malaby. His Time Like This will no doubt show up on several best-of lists. There's also music from artists from Driff Records, trumpeter Russ Johnson's new Headlands, and plenty more from around the globe.

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.
