About Me

I have worked with music since 1999, first as a wannabe journalist at university, then as a real one, covering the local and international jazz scene in Barcelona, where I went to produce records and set up shows. I worked for Fresh Sound Records in Barcelona for five years on hundreds of CD productions. The label focussed on modern jazz recordings from the mid-1950s and contemporary jazz recordings - including the first releases by Robert Glaspar, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Brad Mehldau and others. I was as a Content Acquisition Consultant for eMusic, Communications Manager for mail order company Jazz Messengers, and helped set up the first AAJ Download Store back in 2006. Today, I work as a copywriter and editor in Stockholm, Sweden.

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.
