The lineup for this edition of OMJ is like a menu in an ice cream shop: so many flavours to choose from. The AACM is alive and well in the excellent new release for Astral Spirits by Wadada Leo Smith, Douglas R. Ewart & Mike Reed, power guitar from Slovenia's Samo Salamon with a French quartet, prepared piano from Benoit Delbecq, Jorma Tapio and Rolling Thunder from Finland, and the Zoom-session created Some Kind Of Tomorrow by Jane Ira Bloom & Mark Helias. Astral Spirits has also released new free stuff from Thollem and Rob Frye. Enjoy all of these plus a lot more to taste.

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
