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...

Sample On Demand Player box1. Feature Your Music with AAJ On Demand!

Place your music in front of the web's largest community of jazz consumers and jazz industry pros with AAJ's On Demand Audio Player. Once created, your audio player will appear on your All About Jazz musician profile page, on articles written about you, on your news announcement pages and on your concert event pages. It essentially appears on every page about you! Learn more.

2. Your New & Improved Profile

We made a significant upgrade to the musician profile page earlier this year and have made steady improvements to it ever since. If you are keeping score, here are the top three features.

1. A tabbed box that includes your On Demand player, your MP3s and your latest release.

2. A photo slideshow where you select the six photos and set their order of appearance.

3. A new and improved way to contact your fans. Just click the "Contact Fans" link and your message will be emailed to your friends. We'll also post a message to each fan's private message (PM) page.
