About Me

Gary Gomes has been playing music since the age of 13 (Keyboards, guitars, bass, harmonica, electronics). In that time, he has explored rock, jazz and experimental music with various fellow noisemakers. Becoming interested at an early age in groups like Cream, the Doors and Soft Machine, he graduated to free jazz and other forms of jazz at age 19, and has also covered various forms of avant garde classical music. He has been an assistant fine arts editor, radio show host, and has also played with individuals who later went on to play with various Canterbury school personalities (Absolute Zero). Also interested in astrology and metaphysics, he is an internationally known Vedic Astrologer and is a Swami of the Temple of Kriya Yoga out of Chicago, Illinois, and a Shaivite Hindu.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
