Lots of trumpeters this week (mostly 21st century music): Marcus Printup, Ron Horton, Roy Hargrove, Farnell Newton, along with Buck Clayton (and Buddy Tate) plus Emmett Berry (and Don Byas). Big band (a bit off center) from Marty Ehrlich and Django Bates and the Charlie Parker centennial (Koko, including the 'famous' breakdown) and our chronological Sonny Rollins celebration, this time with Max Roach's band from 1957. Along the way Big John Patton, Ronnie Cuber, Don Byron and Stan Getz. Enjoy the show.

BTW, to answer radio affiliate/listener queries about how much time it takes to put one G&M show together: This show took 22.5 hours from start to finish. My guesstimate is that's about average for each show, but the range is 10 to 30 hours. It's more than sitting in the chair and slapping on 2 hours of music!

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.
