My Jazz Story

Published on: 2017-04-08

Growing up, jazz always filled our home. I played jazz as soon as I could in school bands and summer programs, on flute and piano. It wasn't until college that I happened into singing jazz when asked to step up from the piano and sing Ellington's "Prelude To A Kiss" with the big band. Jazz is such an exciting musical playground. Each time you play a tune, it's different--based on who you're playing with, the arrangement, and the improvisation. Jazz is America's true original art form, and it brings me great joy. As Louie Armstrong said, "...you can even live your life by it."

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.
