"The Donny Hathaway Live album is so special because it captureswith full concentrationthe thing that's special in live performance. That communication, that exchange of audience and artist. There's back and forth conversation, the women and the men in the audience are screaming things back to Donny and Donny's of course responding musicallyand responding incredibly musically. You can feel the emotion in the room as soon as the needle hits the record. That communicationit's not just jazz, it's not just soul, it's human to human. That exchange between humanity is just beautiful to see. It happens on Donny Hathaway Live."

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!
