Dear All About Jazz Readers,

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...

Sandwiched between The Thailand International Jazz Conference held in Bangkok in January and the Penang Island Jazz Festival held in Malaysia in December, there were also visits to Borneo Jazz, the Hong Kong International Jazz Festival, and a visit to Belfast, Ireland, to see guitarists Martin Taylor and 14-year old sensation Andreas Varady, and the London Jazz Festival to see Nik Bärtsch's Ronin. Out of around 70 gigs seen this year, many stood out for their originality, including, guitarist Scott Henderson, singer Simin Tander and pianist Ignasi Terraza; however, the following are my best shows of the year, in chronological order:
