About Me

This is where I should summarize all of me and funnel it into select words in hopes of capturing the essence of what I am. Maybe I'm too focused or obtuse but the task of distilling and extracting is one I have not mastered, yet.

My Jazz Story

Who can honestly say they're not moved when they hear Billie Holiday? Who can deny the inevitable feeling of warmth and good that flows when a Billy Strayhorn composition makes contact with your ears? It is experiences like these, and others, that make my heart and soul want to dance, shout, and sing. Duke said there's only two types of music: Good and bad. He's much more talented than I dream of being and more magnanimous when it comes to musical taste. Jazz is it for me. Nothing else comes close.

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.
