Lots of guitar this week: John Scofield with Bill Frisell, Jim Hall, Pat Martino, Tiny Grimes, Kevin Eubanks with Dave Holland, Bill Jennings (an influence on B.B. King), and Paul Bollenback with Jim Jim Snidero. We also have a couple of tracks from the currently unavailable Fred HerschEsperanza Spalding duo set live at the Village Vanguard (a recent fundraiser for the Jazz Foundation of America). We continue our Sonny Rollins celebration with tunes from Newk's Time, and there's a Herbie Nichols 'compare & contrast.' Along the way, Benny Green and Monk at the 88s. Enjoy the show!

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!
