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.

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 London-based Italian drummer Enzo Zirilli is a regular guest at Folkclub, one of the main music venues in Turin, Italy. With his "Radio London" project, he regularly brings talented musicians that perform in bands he leads of co-leads to Folkclub. To celebrate the tenth year of this curated concert series, Zirilli invited acclaimed guitar master Peter Bernstein to join him as well as pianist Dado Moroni and bassist Dario Deidda. The quartet performed in the crowded room with a rousing concert featuring jazz classics like "Theme for Ernie" and "Missile Blues." Vibrant solos with moments of deep group interplay and lyrical passages, the band displayed a high degree of virtuosity. In sum, this was a performance which the audience visibly enjoyed and an excellent way to mark another landmark: thirty years of Folkclub activity.
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.
