My Jazz Story

Published on: 2016-06-22

Jazz is music that you listen to and it is best to listen in a club setting. The club setting is ideal because, not only do you hear the music, you see the music being played. At the club you see the moving hands of the pianist and drummer; you see the connection between the guys playing the horns. That's why I am grateful "Take 5 Jazz at the Brew" has opened in Stockton, CA. It's the place where you can hear real jazz! I'm talking about Bird, Cannonball, Miles, Monk... you get the idea. And remember, the jazz club is not where you sit and hold conversations. The jazz club is where you sit, listen and watch.

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!
