Giving Thanks & Sharing the Jazz Love

As always, we're celebrating Thanksgiving by recognizing two special groups of people: our fund drive supporters who helped make much of the 2023 website improvements possible and our staff who submitted and prepared articles. Both contributions are immeasurable and we thank you all for your generosity, passion and friendship. The good people who support this website are as cool and as essential as the music itself. With deep appreciation, thanks again!

A daily commitment since 1995

At All About Jazz and Jazz Near You, we celebrate jazz every day and have done so for 28 years. We also publish new content seven days a week, including articles, album reviews, radio shows & podcasts, news announcements, birthdays, music, photos, musician pages, and we host the most active jazz events calendar on the web.

With an international collection of volunteers and a modest but resourceful technical team, we continually improve all facets of All About Jazz and Jazz Near You and have charted our progress here.

We listen and we learn

It's suggestions from folks like you that have helped shape our direction and nowhere is this more apparent than our musician database where we host over 137,000 profiles. Our ongoing mission is to identify the needs of performing/recording artists and develop solutions to support their careers. It's worked out well over the years: We've helped musicians secure gigs, establish tours, get reviewed, sell music, find students or simply get discovered.

We've experienced 28 difference-making years, and we'd like to continue to support the music we know and love through regular improvements to the All About Jazz platform.

Making a good thing, great

There are some fast and easy ways to support the future of All About Jazz and Jazz Near You, and your help will ensure that we continue to improve the premiere jazz destination on the internet.
  • Mention All About Jazz and Jazz Near You to a jazz-loving friend. We continually receive emails from readers who discovered us for the first time which means we need to continue to spread the word.
