My Jazz Story

Published on: 2017-11-06

There is something inherently exciting in jazz music, that you rarely find in any other music form. The constant striving for reinvention and originality constantly brings fresh ideas to the ever changing jazz scene. It's a great scene to be a part of! For some time now I've had a particular interest in the use of clarinet in jazz. I played clarinet before I was ever really into jazz, but now I focus my time on studying the instrument within a jazz context, and investigating how to push the boundaries of its usage.

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.
