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.

  6. Limited run column

  7. Musician profile editor

  8. Musician discography editor

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.
