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...
Mentioned in documents as early as the 11th century and definitely existent in the 13th century, Timişoara is the heart of the Banata beautiful and rich Romanian region that has had its share of glory, beauty and hardship.
Dan Diaconu, Deputy Mayor of Timisoara Municipality said, "Since its beginning, jazz was defined as a diverse and multicultural musical genre, even before these concepts existed, a continuum mix of people, feelings and music. A festival creates a symbol for a city that hosts it and strengthens its identity. JazzTM comes to celebrate the vibrant cultural energy of Timisoara."
I love jazz because there are so many styles and ways to interpret the music--so much room for creativity.
I was first exposed to jazz at a very young age, listening to great artists such as Nat King Cole and Lena Horne.
