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...

LehCats' latest release, Movement to Egalitaria, is a collection of songs that come together to engender an achievable vision of a fairer society. Join me and this fantastic musical couple, Karen Stachel and Norbert Stachel, as we talk about the making of the album, discrimination in the world of classical music, the Bay area, and other carefully related topics.
