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...
As stated earlier only a fraction of the multitude of concerts could be reported on. The headings of the sections 'shreddinggracefulangelicrococomind-expanding earthy lightness' indicate a rich and meaningful diversity of well-sold concerts with a deeper cohesion and strong local connection, as well as regional connectivity. The three special locations reported on speak for themselves. The last event at the modern dance venue -also connected to the Urban Thinkers Campus, a United Nations initiative -shows what a richly branched and lively firing network like that of artistic director Rainer Kern can effectuate and achieve.

I love jazz because it takes my mind away and is very relaxing.
I was first exposed to jazz by my older brother every morning while eating breakfast before school he would play Hiroshima One which I hated but after he moved away to college and I moved to Miami I fell in love with jazz music.
