My Jazz Story

Published on: 2017-04-03

I love jazz because it allows for complete self-expression - really delving into one's core authenticity - but you can't be selfish. You have to learn how to be an individual within the context of a greater, and ideally cooperative, group dynamic. Jazz teaches freedom, democracy, humility, and humanity. And best of all - it never finishes teaching, because the path of mastery is an eternal journey.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
