Clifford Allen

Clifford Allen wishes he could've shared a loft at 27 Cooper Square in 1966.

About Me

I have been a student of this music since my early college days and have written about it since 2002. In addition to AAJ, my writing can be found in Signal To Noise, Paris Transatlantic, Bagatellen, the Austinist and One Final Note. I have also penned liner notes for releases on ESP-Disk', Clean Feed Records, 612 Sides (trumpeter Kelly Rossum) and Speetones (saxophonist/flutist James Spaulding).

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.
