Jeff Stockton

Jeff listens to as much recorded music as he can.

About Me

I learned what I could about jazz before I heard much of it from reading the Rolling Stone Record Guide and anything else I could get my hands on. I remember buying a cassette of A Love Supreme in a mall and taking it home and hearing my life change. I remember hearing Rahsaan Roland Kirk shout about the Inflated Tear on the radio station from Temple University in Philadelphia. And I saw the audience in Carnegie Hall leap out of their seats as one in response to Sonny Rollins. Sonny doesn't play Carnegie Hall too often, the mall doesn't sell too much music, and Temple University radio might not play as much jazz, but the music carries on.

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.
