My Jazz Story

Published on: 2017-05-23

I love jazz because the instruments really talk to each other and to us in the audience. I love the phrases and the improvs. I love the way it helps me escape into another sphere. It allows the artists to have so much freedom in their expression so no live performance seems the same. The best show I ever attended was a benefit concert for Dallas Jazz Piano Society where master pianists played in duo and conversed with each other accompanied by bass and drums that added to the conversation.

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.
