B.J. Jansen

Depending on the time of day, I wear different hats. I'm the co-founder of Pitch Artist Services, founder of JM Creative and JansenMusic Records and founder of the Jazz Development Group.

About Me

I have over a decade of experience as a baritone saxophonist, bandleader, producer, composer, arranger, independent record label owner and knowledge of marketing through new technology. I've had first- hand experience in nearly all genres of music and all facets of the music business. I hold an MBA in Music Management from the William Paterson University of New Jersey and a BA in Jazz Studies from the University of Louisville, School of Music. I am a recording artist for (ARC) Artists Recording Collective and an endorsing saxophone artist for International Woodwind, based in Los Angeles. I specialize in the use of new technology, including the internet and social media, to market artists and their music.

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!
