My Jazz Story

I love jazz because...It's simply the most expressive form of music! I was first exposed to jazz...In my home thanks to great musical parents! I met [musician name]...Too many musicians to name and I've opened for many! The best show I ever attended was...Diane Schurr The first jazz record I bought was...Too long ago to remember! LOL! My advice to new listeners...Throw out any previous concept of what jazz is and just relax and listen... Or whatever else you have in mind. Despite attempts of some to free themselves from the power of jazz, Jazz lives!

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.
