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...


Lee Morgan, Kyle Nasser & More

The young and very talented Christian Sands leads off this week's episode of Neon Jazz with music from his 2018 CD Facing Dragons. We then segue into his mentor Dr. Billy Taylor and profile Massachusetts native saxophonist Kyle Nasser with music from his latest disc Persistent Fancy. The talented group of young cats manufacturing a funk/jazz sound called The Black Tie Brass debuts their latest CD Mostly Covered. And, finally, we play the tune "Flimsy" form the great British outfit The New Mastersounds off Nashvilles Sessions 2.
