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...

Donning a washboard and brandishing spoons, Ackamoor then led the Pyramids off stage in an old-time jug-band workout, with rattling percussion and no fewer than three harmonicas blazing. The crowd stomped, clapped and whooped as the musicians filed out the same way, and in similar joyous manner, to the way they had entered. Sun Ra, you feel, would have approved.
