Our 2 features this week: quartet tracks from Wayne Shorter's Emanon (the Downbeat Magazine's Critics and Readers Poll best album of the year) and Sonny Rollins' monumental Saxophone Colossus. We've got 21st century music from four bass players and two Chicago trumpeters. And, of course, a waltz through the vaults with Fletcher Henderson, Bessie Smith, Charles Mingus and Jimmy Smith. Enjoy the show, tell your friends and keep the music strong.
Hats off to our most active listeners of the week in Strasbourg (France), Budapest (Hungary), Moscow (Russian Federation) and Baton Rouge (US)

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.
