Simply becuase we love that large and needed big band sound, we begin episode 612 of Neon Jazz with Dan Bonsanti leading his group of masterful musicians with their take on the jazz. From there, we zig zag around the jazz universe to show listeners where we have been and how far we are going wtih the art form. From the new cats like Lafayette Gilchrist to the sounds of Kenny Drew. We strive to give you the audio thoughts from the musicians to the music that makes up this jazz universe we dig the most.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
