This episode is very wide-ranging in styles and sounds; the boundaries keep expanding. I was very impressed with bassist Lisa Hoppe's new trio, Third Reality, with saxophonist David Leon and guitarist Tal Yahalom. Very original stuff! It's on a German labelJazzhausmusikso do some digging to find it. It's well worth the effort. Drummer, composer and influencer Tyshawn Sorey believed so much in a concert that he recorded live with the great pianist Marilyn Crispell that he insisted there be no breaks in the recording, just let it be the entire concert. It's quite amazing. You'll hear about a third of the concert. Gebhard Ullman steps fully into the microtonal world on his new MikroPULS, and there are some excellent trios with new tunes for you: Michael Formanek's Very Practical Trio, Chris Speed with Dave King and Chris Tordini, Pat Thomas and some English mates doing Paul Bley, Longboard from France, and De Beren Gieren from Belgium. Lots more, of course. Enjoy!

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.
