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 song "Shelter" featured in the video will also be the radio single, which we'll start sending out soon to promote the album. It just made sense to use the same song for the video that we'll be pushing to radio stations this spring . I think the new album will really take off once we start pushing it. We spent a lot of time working on every song so I'm sure we'll put just as much into promoting the album. As for the songs, I can only speak for myself but, it's interesting to hear how the music has developed from albumto-album, because everyone involved keeps growing musically. It pays off to keep pushing yourself because you can be more confident in what you're doing.

I love Jazz because of its freedom.
I was first exposed to jazz in my teenager years.
I have met Art Blakey in Juan-les-Pins, my drum teacher Orphelia took us to his concert, it was magical!
The best Jazz shows I ever attended were Art Blakey, Michel Petrucciani, Miton Nascimento, Naná Vasconcelos.
The first jazz record I bought was Jazz from Hell by Frank Zappa.
