My Jazz Story

Published on: 2019-01-03

I love jazz because it is music that changes each time it is played live. I was first exposed to jazz when my dad listened to Art Tatum who he loved. The best show I ever attended was the 2011 Newport Jazz Festival. The first jazz record I bought was Thelonious Monk's Misterioso.

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!
