About Me

The details of my life are well-documented, from my humble beginnings as a Victorian chimney sweep, to my meteoric rise to fame as a heroic space captain, and finally to my tragic death at the hands of a disgruntled girl scout. Nonetheless, I shall relate the essential details of my fabulous career--and with merciful brevity, so that the reader will not be provoked to yawn or look at his watch.

One day, like a bolt from the blue, I came into this world. My parents christened me Brad (the Inuit word for slinky) and, forty thousand years later, I graduated from College Elementary High and promptly entered the work force--forcibly, I might add. Feeling somewhat unfulfilled, I went strolling through an enchanted forest one afternoon and met a talking squirrel named Archie. He handed me a magic pen and a decidedly non-magic notepad, and instructed me to write.

Ever since then, I've been turning up in the strangest places.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
