This episode might be a week early, given that seven days later is International Jazz Day, but OMJ has been pretty international in scope for a long time now. Thirteen different countries are represented among the artists featured this week. E.g., Pauli Lyytinen's Magnetia Orkestri from Finland, saxophonist Yaroslav Likhachev from Siberia via Berlin, Peripheral Vision and trumpeter Lina Allemano both from Canada, two trios from Switzerland (pianist Marie Kruttli and Ramsch), Composers Orchestra Berlin, and from New York a super quartet of Daniel Carter, Matthew Shipp, William Parker and Gerald Cleaver. And more. You won't want to miss music from Irreversible Entanglements either. Tune in to this one!

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.
