My Jazz Story

My route to discovering jazz is probably typical, starting with Weather Report and other fusion bands in the 70's and seeing where references took me. My favorite jazz instrument is piano, either solo or in classic trios and quartets. I like space in music, not a lot of clutter. Its good that Jazz is in such a healthy place now, with a growing and younger audience.

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!
