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...


Belovèd Django Bates

If you are intrigued by jazz because of its capacity to surprise, amaze, astound, even flabbergast and leave you without words... then British pianist Django Bates is the musician for you!

This week Mondo Jazz has reached out to Django Bates for an interview, in advance of his North American tour. This episode features almost two hours of music by Django Bates, from the Loose Tubes days to his current Belovèd Trio featuring Swedish bassist Petter Eldh and Danish drummer Peter Bruun, the project featured on Bates' recent album The Study of Touch.

The episode also previews the upcoming concert by Camille Bertault and Chico Pinheiro, which will launch the Rizzoli Music Aperitivo, a music series curated by Mondo Jazz at the historic Rizzoli Bookstore in New York, which will try to spotlight, and possibly spark, cross-pollination between music and literature or poetry.

Happy listening!
