My Jazz Story

Published on: 2017-10-03

I love jazz because of the music itself, and how it has touched me over the years. I was first informed of jazz, through seeing and listening to Louis Armstrong in movies and hearing his trumpet and singing. I was also informed by listening to my dad's old records, which included a lot Jamaican ska, and rock-steady tracks, many of which had horn sections, and jazz soloing incorporated into the tracks. This took me into deeper interest later on, and from there, it actually inspired me to want to play jazz myself.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
