My Jazz Story

Published on: 2017-12-05

I love jazz because of the creative expression, the continuous evolution of its harmonic structures and forms and the challenge of improvising over complex harmonies and meters. I was first exposed to jazz in college as a music major. The best show I ever attended was seeing George Cables in a trio, up close at Port Townsend during the club night after the Jazz camp and workshops.

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.
