My Jazz Story

I was first exposed to a child by my Dad. I have fond memories of waking up on Saturday mornings to the sound of Jimmy Smith's "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" album blasting on the turntable and the smell of pine as he and my Mom were cleaning the house. That entire Side 1 still gives me pleasant chills.

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!
