Q: Why should I become an All About Jazz member?
A: For several reasons reasons. Once registered, you can personalize your AAJ experience. You can select your favorites (genres, musicians, contributors, columns) and see the content that is most important to you. Other benefits include creating threads and posting comments to an article, downloading free MP3s, viewing your local calendar, viewing and posting local announcements, and viewing your very own MY AAJ page.
We encourage everyone (fans, musicians, industry pros) to sign up for MY AAJ.
Q: How do I choose a favorite musician?
A: From their musician profile page by clicking the "Follow" link in their "Connect" box.
Q: How do I view events outside my general vicinity?
This applies to US readers only. You can view events outside of your local region by increasing your zip code radius beyond the 25 mile default. You can adjust this number from your profile edit page.
Q: Where can I access club specific and musician specific events?
A: You can access events associated with a particular venue directly from the venues listing page. The venue can be accessed by clicking GUIDES -> Clubs / Venues -> Search.
A musician's calendar can be accessed from his/her profile page.
I love jazz because I enjoy the freedom.
I was first exposed to jazz when I was 17.
I met Cedar Walton at a concert in San Paulo.
The best show I ever attended was Helio Jambao trio.
The first jazz record I bought was Witchcraft by George Benson.
My advice to new listeners is listen to the old school first.
