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...

Jon Faddis: Wigan Arena, July, 2014

Dizzy Gillespie and Roy Eldridge Soul Mates (Verve, 1954)

"I remember getting this as a present from my sister on my 11th birthday and I just remember how excited I was.

I listened to that record thousands of times. It wasn't my first Dizzy Gillespie record but I think it was one of the most important because I couldn't stop listening to it. Dizzy-Roy back and forth, Dizzy-Roy back and forth.

So, there you have it!"
