My Jazz Story

I was exposed to jazz through my son, a drummer who took up jazz in high school so he could attend a preferred high school. Watching his development and acquiring a basic knowledge of classic jazz coincided with my re-entry into the world of vinyl collecting, which only took things further. My son, Judson Branam IV, is entering his senior year in the jazz performance program at Michigan State University.

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!
