About Me

I listen to Jazz, uh… listen to music. I hate to attach genre to music or should say that I am bad in doing that. Jazz to me has always signified music with free improvisation and far sister of Indian Classical music, which I came across during my student life in Varanasi, India. I am engineer by profession and did my undergraduate from Banaras Hindu University. Varanasi has always been considered the birthplace of Indian culture and its rich music is a free improvisation of the artist himself. I write with various music publications in India and am a fervent music collector.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
