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...

The first show of the month means it's time for a dive into the Blue Note vault for our monthly celebration of Blue Note 50th anniversaries. Before that, the doctor presents a selection of recent music that caught his ear. As a bonus, you will find Albert Ammons, from the second Blue Note release, which was recorded at the first Blue Note recording session ever in 1939 (the original 78s of Blue Note's first release, from Meade Lux Lewis, are in SHOW 106 on Mixcloud). And we bop out the door with a soul jazz classic. Enjoy the show, and don't forget to write (even though I'm not your mama...).
