On alternate Mondays from 8:30 to 10:00 p.m. on the East Coast, join host Mike Atleson for Point of Departure, a program focusing primarily but not exclusively on jazz that combines or is influenced by other world music traditions, including those of Latin America, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Europe. The concept is to explore how jazz musicians from other countries incorporate indigenous musical traditions and how jazz musicians in this country incorporate foreign musical traditions. Series heard on Point of Departure include “Native American Jazz,” “East Asian Jazz,” and “Jewish Jazz.”

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
