My Jazz Story

I love jazz because... I was first exposed to jazz...by my daddy Jazz has created encounters of the third kind in my life. The best show I ever attended was... I can't answer that there are so many, I could always mention Melvin Jones 2011 Thanksgiving weekend!I was inspired by the entire show and artist and the crowd(s) The first jazz record I bought was...Billie Holiday cd when I was in high school trying to prove to my dad that I was cool like him. My advice to new listeners... Allow the Music to work its magic - it can become a life altering experience and a soul shaking voyage! All worth the investment of TIME & ENERGY Or whatever else you have in mind. MORE JAZZ EVERYWHERE NOW!!!

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.
