Songs of Mirth and Melancholy are what we need.

Listening to jazz almost every day. I think jazz will help me get through the darkness of the current regime. I hope that's the case.

I did discover an album this past week that's kinda jazz kinda not. Whatever it is, it's sublime. Just two guys. Branford Marsalis on tenor and soprano sax. Joey Calderazzo on piano. Sax and piano.   That's it. No rhythm section. Some of it is almost classical. It's mind-blowing.

Songs of Mirth and Melancholy is the album. 2011 on the Marsalis Music label.

You can hear the whole album here. I listened to it there. Then I went to iTunes and bought it. It will help ease your stress.
