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...

A community-driven effort to further jazz on the web

Since we began back in 1995, and through the constant volunteer support of jazz enthusiasts, jazz musicians, industry professionals and web technicians, All About Jazz has established itself as an essential resource for jazz music. The site's importance grows with each passing year and as we further expand what we do, our dependency on folks like yourself grows as well. We're committed to building a comprehensive website that embraces a global and local community of members who love jazz.

Our vision is to build a music resource where everyone can play an active role in furthering the awareness of jazz and jazz musicians on the internet.

What can this mean for you?

It means that you can join our staff of volunteers write articles, administer musician profile, enter local events and news information, and maintain our directory of venues.

Thanks to our unprecedented growth and our strong search engine placement, All About Jazz has established itself as an important advocacy site for jazz music, one that cultivates new listeners while exposing long-time listeners to new forms by contemporary composers.

We have come a long way, yet our journey has just begun: There is much data to gather and maintain, and more technical work ahead.

As we open the website to knowledgeable and caring jazz people, we aim to be a valued and dependable resource for jazz music for years to come. Built and maintained by volunteers around the world, we're looking for your help to assist us in our mission to further the awareness of jazz on the internet.

There are many ways you can participate. We hope that you will join us on this exciting and oftentimes educational journey, as we continue to build on a very special resource that was developed for a cause we can all support.

Are you interested in working with us?

If so, read on, and if you've not already done so, complete our help wanted form.

Help fund our ongoing development efforts to support jazz online. Make a donation to All About Jazz today.
