Giving Thanks & Sharing the Jazz Love

Read "Giving Thanks & Sharing the Jazz Love" reviewed by Michael Ricci


As always, we're celebrating Thanksgiving by recognizing two special groups of people: our fund drive supporters who helped make much of the 2022 website improvements possible and our staff who submitted and prepared articles. Both contributions are immeasurable and we thank you all for your generosity, passion and friendship. The good people who support this website are as cool and as essential as the music itself. With deep appreciation, thanks again! A daily commitment since 1995 At All ...

Silver Linings: AAJ @ 25

Read "Silver Linings: AAJ @ 25" reviewed by Michael Ricci


All About Jazz recently celebrated its 25th year online. Crazy as it sounds, “AAJ," as it has come to be known, was originally a sandbox to help me learn the ins-and-outs of the infant World Wide Web. Fast forward five years and the double whammy of Y2K and 9/11 sunk my software business (another story). But AAJ was built of sterner stuff. We navigated through such disruptive forces as malicious hackers and the revenue-draining vampire that is social media, and ...

COVID-19 and its impact represents an extraordinary and unprecedented time for us all. It has affected every person and every organization in jazz, disrupted our livelihoods, and we're all greatly concerned about the health and well-being of our community. Personally, I'm accustomed to working from home and have been doing so since 1995--but our network and touchpoints extend far beyond AAJ HQ. As a central source for all things jazz, we are in constant communication with individuals representing ...

Read "All About Jazz Website Tips: 2017" reviewed by Michael Ricci


I think it's safe to say that All About Jazz (which includes Jazz Near You) far exceeds any reader's expectations when they first visit the website. We regularly introduce new sections, new features, and we keep our design fresh with the goal of constantly raising the bar we set 22 years ago. As a result, we have much to offer our fund drive supporters, our members, our advertisers, and our readers. As we scale our platform to offer more features ...

All About Jazz: The Innovation Game

Read "All About Jazz: The Innovation Game" reviewed by Michael Ricci


2015 marked All About Jazz's 20th year online. From the humble beginnings as a simple link site to the largest database in jazz media, AAJ has continually improved over the years and through some inspired stretches, has made significant advancements for jazz online. For me personally, operating All About Jazz since its inception has been a rewarding and life changing experience. And though it hasn't been without its dramatic moments, we have always navigated through the rough patches and improved ...

All About Jazz: Upgrades Continue... Move pending

Read "All About Jazz: Upgrades Continue... Move pending" reviewed by Michael Ricci


If you visited All About Jazz between mid-December and the first week of February, then there was a good chance that our website was either slow or (worse) timed out. We apologize for the inconvenience but we were dealing with two very serious technical issues that have since been resolved. Now that we're back on track, we're excited to roll up our sleeves and get back to doing what we do best: innovate. But first, we'll ...

Read "To 20 More Years! Help us build a bigger and better All About Jazz" reviewed by Michael Ricci


In celebration of All About Jazz's 20th anniversary, we're asking for greater participation from our readers. Taking a page out of Wikipedia's book, we're looking for our friends and our long-time readers to pitch in and help: from submitting an article, to helping with other sections of the website including Jazz Near You. Kinda like this... Love Jimmy Smith's music? Then help us complete his musician profile and his discography. or, this...
