Jazz Influencers: Jazz Influencers
We're on a quest to identify jazz's most influential musicians and we began gathering the data two years ago when we quietly released a feature where musicians could select influencers (from their musician page). We figured it would be a fun way to use our technology to identify jazz's influencers to further promote discovery within the music. You can view the up-to-the-minute results here. Our goal is to spread the word to all working jazz musicians (worldwide) and encourage them to participate. So, if you're a musician, please update your musician page with your influencers. Thank you!
