My Jazz Story

Published on: 2016-04-11

The best show I ever attended was Esbjorn Svensson Trio at IAJE in New York City. Even hearing them with the tired ears that come with attending a multiple-day jazz conference, the dynamic writing and incendiary performance left an indelible mark on me. I still can't believe he is gone.

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!
