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...

The summer is almost over and the pace at which new albums are being released is picking up... This week we focus on a few new gems, including two remarkable tributes to Thelonious Monk, the mighty Work: The Complete Compositions of Thelonious Monk (in six volumes!) by Miles Okazaki and the idiosyncratic The MONK: Live at Bimhuis by Miho Hazama with the Metropole Orkest Big Band. Ah... and new works featuring John Scofield, Bill Frisell, Steve Cardenas, Manu Codjia and Charlie Hunter (and of course Miles Okazaki) for all the guitar hero worshippers out there!
I love jazz because it is the most diverse music genre.
I was first exposed to jazz a long time ago.
The best show I ever attended was Henry Threadgill's very very Circus at SJU jazzpodium in Utrecht.
The first jazz record I bought was Coleman Hawkins Big Band live at The Savoy Ballroom 1940.
My advice to new listeners is to attend as many concerts you can even though you may not know the musicians who are playing.
