My Jazz Story

I love jazz because I love beautiful music of all kinds. I was first exposed to jazz when I was young. I met and / or played with Steve Lacy, Dexter Gordon, Eddie Daniels, Bill Green, Ernie Watts, Marshall Royal, Milcho Leviev, John Klemmer, Joe Farrell, Phil Collins, Hal Galper, Howard Rumsey, Rudy Onderweiser, John Nau, Chris Colangelo, Phil Woods, Dave Stone, Jerry Gibbs, Benny Golson, Roy McCurdy, Nels Cline, Frank Strazzeri, Toshiko Akiyoshi, Jim Seely, Bobby Shew, Fritz Wise, Christof Luty, George Colligan, Ralph Alessi, Herb Pomeroy, Max Bennett, California Outside Music Association, Scott Colley, Dave Karasony, Eric Von Essen, Andy Milne, Bob Bowman, Don Preston, Dominic Genova, Larry Gales, Dick Hafer, LA Jazz Workshop, Ken Filiano, Kendall Kay, Trey Henry, Tom McMorran, Dan Lutz, Larry Koonse, and many more. My advice to new listeners is have a sense of discovery, open up, broaden your world, and keep listening.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
