Though jazz is not overly replete with steamy gossip (imagine a Cosmo story like “Sexy Secrets of Trumpeters Revealed"), it does have its fair share of important news. With that in mind, we inaugurate our What's News column this month, a place to inform our readers of items of general interest to the jazz community. While primarily local in nature, we will try to include those things that are relevant to listeners and practitioners as a whole. So to that end, we encourage you to send us news you think should be included. We only ask that it be of a more universal slant than record releases, gig announcements and the like (that is what the rest of the gazette is for). We hope this will become a valuable service (see p. 5)

This month's coverage is another appealing mix of artists. Vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson (On The Cover) is one of the legends of the instrument, appearing on many classic albums both as a leader and sideman and his current work with the SFJazz Collective has received much critical praise. Gunther Schuller (Interview) is another giant in jazz, responsible for bringing together what at one time were considered the disparate worlds of jazz and classical music. If you've heard the term “Third Stream" before, Schuller is its coiner and lifelong champion. Franois Houle (Artist Feature) is one of the talented and forwardthinking musicians that Canada has contributed to jazz over the years. Houle is at the forefront of the modern clarinet revolution. We veer towards the traditional with our Label Feature on MCG Jazz, a non-profit organization committed to presenting live jazz whose archive of concert recordings is a treasure. Londel's (Club Profile) is one of the clubs trying to reestablish Harlem as a center for jazz both in New York and in the world. Don't miss our Encore on Ira Sullivan, who makes a rare appearance in the city this month, and Festival Reports from Arizona and Washington DC. As you start shopping for turkeys and tinsel, leave a little (or preferably a lot) of time for jazz this holiday season.

We sure will...

Laurence Donohue-Greene & Andrey Henkin

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!
