While I'm away, I have a different video clip for you each day this week. Each clip is fun and fascinating in its own right. To kick off the series, here's the Bobby Troup Trio in 1951 performing Troup's own Daddy, with singer Virginia Maxey. That's Al Viola on guitar and Lloyd Pratt on bass:

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!
