The greatest chapter in the adventure that is All About Jazz is only just beginning. —Ian Patterson, from A Modern Day Jazz Messenger
In celebration of All About Jazz's 20th anniversary, we're asking for greater participation from our readers. Taking a page out of Wikipedia's book, we're looking for our friends and our long-time readers to pitch in and help: from submitting an article, to helping with other sections of the website including Jazz Near You.

Kinda like this...

Love Jimmy Smith's music? Then help us complete his musician profile and his discography.

or, this...

Live in Seattle? Then help us complete the Seattle venue listing page.

But back to articles...

If you have an article that you think would be of interest to our readers then present it to us for consideration. We'll archive older interviews and we'll work with you on one- off ideas like a Top Ten List article, a Building a Jazz Library article or a Big Question article. We'll also consider limited-run column ideas.

If any of these ideas appeal to you, please contact me to discuss.


Ten ways to contribute to All About Jazz

  1. Big Question contributor
    We examine issues facing jazz by posing questions to our readers. Here's our archive. Submit your Big Question here.

  2. Top Ten List contributor
    Develop top ten lists and share them with our readers. View our archive.

  3. Building a Jazz Library contributor
    Help others build their jazz collections. Check out our archive.

  4. "Musician to Musician" interviewer
    Musician? Talk shop and talk straight.

  5. Jazz Raconteurs contributor
    Captivate our readers with an old story.

  6. Limited run column
    Have a story that you can't tell in a single article? Consider a column.

  7. Musician profile editor
    Claim a musician's profile and add a bio, links, videos, photos, and more.

  8. Musician discography editor
    Complete a musician's discography. Leader (not sideman) efforts only. Title, record label and year released are required. Example.

  9. Local venue listing editor
    Help us ensure that your local venue directory is accurate and complete.

  10. Upload photos
