Cyril Moshkow

Cyril runs Russia's jazz magazine and Web resource, Jazz.Ru, and writes extensively about jazz music for Russian and international publications.

About Me

I have tried many jobs: I was a TV reporter, a music festival producer, a security guard, a news agency editor, a rock group musician, a radio station host, a newspaper columnist, a prep school professor, a radio station program director, but it was writing about jazz music which made me feel like doing the right thing at the right place. I have spend most of my life in my native Moscow, Russia, though I travelled worldwide (still do, and hope to keep doing this) -- as far as the U.S., which for my Russian readers is indeed a remote and exotic place.

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.
