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...
BS: I am not doing much now. We are involved in two moves. We moved from Washington down here and bought a home that didn't work out, and so we had to put it on the market and we bought another house. And we just moved into this one a week ago and so that has pretty much dominated everything, these two moves. As a result, my wife, Linda, who had been taken care of my career, hadn't been on the phone and so I haven't been doing much these last few months, but starting in June, I'm back hard at it.
I am going to Europe again and going back East. I have a whole lot of friends that aren't working too. The weather is marvelous. It is closer to LA. This is much better.
I was first exposed to jazz while learning to play chess with my uncles. They would play smooth jazz, and then switch up to more standard types of jazz. But, when they played Kind of Blue by Miles Davis, I was
hooked and I haven't looked back.
