If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.
You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

Gary Bartz kicks off the 585th episode of Neon Jazz with Heavy Blue. From there, we profile cats who have been a part of his world and growth like Miles Davis and Charlie Parker. Then, we get into a host of new and old tracks from the likes of Quinsin Nachoff, Chet Baker, Iris Ornig and many more. We pay tribute to both Ethel Ennis and Henry Butler for their huge contributions to the world of jazz. Finally, we end things with a Kansas City flavor with a tune from the Kansas City Chiefs band as a fitting end to a Championship year.
