Dear All About Jazz Readers,

If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.

You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

The 8th annual 2017 Montclair Jazz festival in Nishuan Park in Montclair NJ came alive on August 12 with the sights and sounds of jazz. Actress S, Epatha Merkerson, from the hit TV series "Law and Order" was once again mistress of ceremonies along with WBGO Jazz 88.3 FM announcer Gary Walker. This festival had performances by Dee Dee Bridgewater and her Memphis Soulphony band, Cyrus Chestnut, Christian McBride situation band and the talented Jazz House Kids youth performers and staff ensembles. Here are just a few photo's I feel capture the spirit of this wonderful festival.
