Jazz lover, drummer, lover of life - how's that?

My Jazz Story

I love jazz because it's the music of my inner being. It's the music I first heard while nurturing in my mother's womb. I met Ralph Towner in Seattle once at Jazz Alley while the band Oregon was performing. It made my whole week. The first jazz record I bought was Buddy Rich and his Big New Band

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
