Straight outta San Francisco with his talented orchestra, Marcus Shelby opens this week's episode with music off his latest CD Transitions. We then move into the reason Marcus got into jazz and that would be the New Orleans titan Wynton Marsalis. The hour continues with Bonerama covering Led Zeppelin, Frank Grasso, Dennis Coffee and Etienne Charles. In between those jazz lines, we profile the lives of Kalya Ramu and Yoko Miwa. We finish it all up with the talent of Julian Lage at the guitar off his latest album Love Hurts.

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!
