My Jazz Story

Published on: 2018-03-03

I love jazz because of its emotive intelligence. I was first exposed to jazz through a reasonably priced vinyl copy of Kind Of Blue. The first jazz record I bought was the aforementioned Miles Davis' 'Kind Of Blue.' Followed swiftly by albums by Ornette Coleman, Charles Mingus, John Coltrane, and Sun Ra. My advice to new listeners is keep digging until you find the jazz style/artist/record that gets your hairs a-standing. There's something for everyone. You just have to dig...

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.
