Finnish jazz artists are front-and-center this episode. You'll hear music from the ambitious and busy We Jazz record label which is based in Helsinki, and you'll also hear music from one of that country's top trios, Hot Heros. They've got a new recording out on Eclipse Music, another important label in Finland. There's other new music too from Jamie Saft, The Pen Club from Australia, Toronto bassist Alex Fournier, the Portuguese-Italian band Tetterapadequ, and an extremely notable release for 2019, Eric Hofbauer's Five Agents and Book of Water. Plus many more great tunes!

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.
