My Jazz Story

I love jazz because it has always been a music which should be absorbed in a live atmosphere. Never repeating itself and always searching for the next notes that will intoxicate a Jazz addict's craving. A never ending high of sounds and emotions. I was first exposed to jazz as a child when I arrived in New York city. I have had the honor of meeting and seeing the best of Jazz in action all over the world. The best show I ever attend will be the Jam session in heaven when I finally get to Jam with the elders. The first jazz record I bought was Miles Davis' Kind of Blue. My advice to new listeners... if you've made it this far, then finish what you've started. Support the artists !

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!
