My Jazz Story

I love jazz just because. I was first exposed to jazz via my older Brother, he started with John Abercrombie and Miles Davis albums. I've met a lot of well known musicians, through my older Bro who is a professional jazz guitarist. One of the best show I ever attended was John Scofield's solo guitar set @ Grace Cathedral Church in San Francisco back in 2011 (room with natural 7 second echo) The first jazz record I bought was Miles Davis'es Agharta. My advice to new listeners, be open minded, live dangerously.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
