About the All About Jazz Platform

The internet's highest-Trafficked and longest-Running platform for jazz music

All About Jazz has been a pillar of the jazz community since 1995, championing the music as an art form and, more importantly, supporting the musicians who create it. Our enduring commitment has made “AAJ" one of the most culturally important websites of its kind, read by hundreds of thousands of enthusiasts, musicians and industry figures every month. Renowned trumpeter Enrico Rava cited All About Jazz as “The Bible of Jazz” while London-based vocalist Sabrina Rabello referred to it as “The IMDb of Jazz.” Though AAJ is not IMDb, it shares more attributes with the movie database than it does with industry print publications.

The Experience

The All About Jazz experience varies depending on how users engage it. Though there is overlap, what a reader, writer, editor, live music presenter, musician, educator, publicist or advertiser values depends on their needs. For an enthusiast, it is about entertainment and discovery, while for the professional, it is about leveraging All About Jazz’s promotional services and readership.

Big Numbers; Big Data

International in scope, All About Jazz is a highly decorated, trafficked, recognized, referenced, and respected brand of 28 years’ standing. The driving force behind AAJ’s continued success rests on its evolving technology–its relational database in particular. It has allowed AAJ to create a robust, scalable and integrated platform to serve its community of 217,000 members and 250,000 monthly readers as well as host 134,000 musician profile pages, over 80,000 articles and over 220,000 photos.

Lifting All Voices

All About Jazz provides an authoritative perspective on jazz music and is recognized for its depth and breadth of coverage. Inclusive in nature, AAJ strives to provide a voice for all.
