Do the pivot!

We're doing our best to rigorously pivot our platform to support our jazz musician friends and ourselves during this time of crisis. If you're not already suffering from donation fatigue, please consider supporting AAJ with a modest sum. As noted journalist and good friend, Joe Woodard stated when hearing about our directional shift to broadcasting live streams, "this is great, and something AAJ is ideally and philosophically suited for." If you agree with Joe, please make a donation.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
