My Jazz Story

One of the best shows I ever attended was a Sun Ra concert. In fact, it was my first jazz concert ever, back in the late 1970's. The music moved me and the performance moved me. After all, music should make you feel something, whether the music is good or bad. Just like art, music should affect your being. My music education is life experience and always trying to play with those better than me. I play many "jazz" songs but try to do them in my own manner. Likewise, I'm not constrained by title to include music from many genres in my repertoire. Music is life.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
