My Jazz Story

I love jazz because it's a music that was born out of the struggles here in America and is now celebrated around the world. It's a music that rocks your spirit and energizes your creativity! At least for me as an artist the music moves me in this way.

My House Concert Story

Although the COVID-19 Pandemic caused much dismay, the arts and music community had to recharge and refocus our energy to continue creating virtually. As a result, we launched Home Spun Sundays with the dynamic Broadway Composer and Pianist Emme Kemp via Facebook Live. The results were phenomenal and we revived over 9,000 views on our 2nd series in June and over 4,600 views in the month of July. Now, we will be broadcasting on The On Channel on Sun. Aug. 23rd at 8 pm and on Sat. Sept 12th at 3 pm. Very exciting!I I encorage everyone to go virtual! #artsharingthroughsocialdistancing. Gwen Black, Founder of Arts and Jazzfest NYC(tm)

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!
