As always, we're celebrating Thanksgiving by recognizing two very important groups of people: our fund drive supporters who helped make much of the 2019 website improvements possible and our staff who contributed articles and reviews to All About Jazz daily. 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. Thanks again!

A daily commitment since 1995

At All About Jazz and Jazz Near You, we celebrate jazz every day. We publish new content seven days a week, including articles, news announcements, free tracks, photos, musician pages, and we host the most active jazz events calendar on the web.

With an international collection of volunteer writers, staff members and a modest but resourceful technical team, we continually improve all facets of All About Jazz and Jazz Near You.

We listen and we learn

It's suggestions from folks like you that have helped shape our direction over the past 24 years and nowhere is this more apparent than our musician database where we host over 110,000 pages. Our ongoing mission is to identify the needs of performing/recording artists and develop web-based 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 24 good 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!

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
