My Jazz Story

I love jazz because... it's the only true American music. I was first exposed to jazz... Early in life, but really began to love it about 10 years ago.when I watched the movie "Paris Blues." I met [musician name]... Kristin Korb, Jeff Hamilton, Bruce Forman, Buddy Guy (blues I know). And several other greats. The best jazz show I ever attended was... Kristin Korb trio at Alva's in Redondo Beach in May 2013. The first jazz record I bought was... Django Reinhardt My advice to new listeners... Open up and enjoy the music. Lose yourself and be amazed.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
