About Me

Dale Cruse is a designer/developer with a background in user-centric design, standards-based development, and content.

At any given time he's got his fingers in several different projects, ranging from a blog to a podcast to multiple public and private websites. Dale is the Musician Center Editor for AllAboutJazz, the premiere website about jazz. He has also been a guest lecturer at the Art Institute of New England.

He sees inspiration all around him and finds order in chaos. You should see him organize a refrigerator. He drinks an inordinate amount of coffee, which is for closers.

In his spare time he can be found practicing the double bass, playing darts, and enjoying wine with his girlfriend Courtney. They live in Norwood, MA.

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!
