The boys contemplate the profundity of the abyss—or, at least, of some fairly serious third-streamy jazz releases, on this very "whoa, man" episode. A three-disc extravaganza from a feted musician on Blue Note, a challenging big-group project on the always challenging Intakt label, and a ballet score by jazz's favorite theoretician from the sixties make up the bulk of this one. Pop matters lightens things up a bit with discussions of Brian Eno and Donovan (Donovan?) and Pat's pocket review of a Joey DeFrancesco gig at Minneapolis' Dakota jazz club.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
