My Jazz Story

Published on: 2019-01-09

I love jazz because to me it includes so much - from the jazz fusion and jazz rock of the seventies, that influenced me in the beginning, to the latin jazz and melodic folk music-jazz that I later discovered. I've always looked in different directions for inspiration and even though my music often is hard to put a label on. I regard jazz to be the closest genré. I was first exposed to jazz listening to the Swedish piano master Jan Johansson in the seventies.

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!
