Larry Taylor

Larry retired from teachng college journalism after over 20 years, coming to teaching from 15 years in the newspaper business working for Ridder-Johns Newspapers.

About Me

After retiring, I have been traveling a lot and writing about it. My stories regularly appear in several publications. As well, I review plays and musical presentations, classical along with jazz for a local newspaper and online magazines. I have been a life-long jazz fan, collecting records and CDs, going to clubs and concerts. My wife, Gail, works as a fund-raiser and photographer. She takes photos for my stories.

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.
