My Jazz Story

I love jazz because... I fell in love with John Coltrane. John Coltrane was not the first jazz artist that I had heard. I was turned on to jazz in the early seventies by my older brother. He would bring home albums from college that he heard for the first time and I was excited to hear these jazz albums. I believe it all started with Earth Wind & Fire, the elements. In 2005 I volunteered to become a community DJ at UNCG, The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. The call letters of the station are WUAG 103.1 FM The Music. I hosted a very successful radio show for five years and produced several other shows up until 2014. The show consisted of me playing various genres like; jazz, r&b, hip hop, gospel, and soul. I would spin 45's and LP's, and interviewed local and national recording artists. My jazz show was known around town and across the states with the help of the internet. I learned a lot about John Coltrane who was born in Hamlet NC, and raised in High Point NC, the town I now reside.

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!
