Improved album content to support leaders, co-leaders and side personnel: Improved album content to support leaders, co-leaders and side personnel
Your good friends at AAJ greatly improved how we handle album personnel—making it easier for readers to discover "who played on what."

To best illustrate how we (now) present personnel on an album, check out Pat Metheny's From This Place. Scroll to the personnel section to view the new look which includes the musician's name, their photo and their instrument. The name and photo is hotlinked to the musician's page at All About Jazz. We also improved how we present personnel on an album review page. Check John Kelman's review of From This Place. Personnel is more clearly marked and the names are now hotlinked to their respective musician pages.

Every musician in the database has an "Albums" landing page and you can learn more about the nuts & bolts of this project here.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
