William, oh William, it was really nothing—but an all—Bill all the time podcast! At Mike's suggestion, this round's musicians are all named Bill. Heck, half of them are white guys named Bill Evans who gigged with Miles Davis. How's that for homogeneity? Don't fret—the other Bills at this party bring heavy-gauge avant credentials to balance things out. Pop matters swerves all over the road, ranging from The Negro Problem to Shaun Colvin.

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
