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...

Love Jazz, Hate Jazz

Love Jazz, Hate Jazz

Years ago, when I dabbled in cartooning, I developed a presentation style where the character on the left makes a statement with a speech balloon while the character on the right responds with a thought balloon—typically in sharp contrast. I had a lot of fun with it.

Here, illustrator Keith Henry Brown and I collaborated on this speech / thought exchange.

Just in time for the holidays, we've made the illustration available on a poster, t-shirt, and greeting card. Visit our Zazzle store if you're interested.

Keith Henry Brown's art can be seen on Jazz Appreciation Month posters as well as several Mack Avenue Records album covers. He is the illustrator of the upcoming children's picture book, Birth of The Cool: How Jazz Great Miles Davis Found His Sound, due out in April 2019.
