My Jazz Story

I love jazz because, it gives my mind and spirit the space to roam free. I was first exposed to jazz in my hometown of New Orleans. The sound is always floating in the air. The first jazz record I bought was Max Roach's M'Boom My advice to new listeners is be patient, and take the journey.

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!
