Blast from our past... AAJme: a short but sweet run

Blast from our past... AAJme: a short but sweet run: Blast from our past... AAJme: a short but sweet run
In the early years of All About Jazz we experimented with our content, presenting it in different formats. Our RSS feeds and our content widgets are still available today but our digital edition (PDF) which was the precursor to the (also) discontinued printed newspapers, was short-lived, only lasting five issues. Advertising support, which we counted on, never materialized. Still, it was fun while it lasted and it looked great.

As we described it...

All About Jazz is proud to introduce All About Jazz—The Monthly Edition, a downloadable companion and supplement to our website. Inside AAJme you'll find reviews of CDs and concerts, interviews with artists and other jazz movers and shakers, articles on all types of jazz, news about what's going on in the jazz world, and bonus content every month exclusive to the download. In other words, AAJme is everything you love about AAJ and more!

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
