Herbie Hancock said once that Jazz is about being in the moment. So I want to write about that moment.

About Me

I'm a Spanish freelance jazz journalist. I was first exposed to jazz through the remarkable experience of living in Den Haag, The Netherlands. Jazz was everywhere. But when I came back to my hometown, Valencia, Spain, I sadly realized that here nobody pays much attention to this music I love, despite the fact that mine is a region with a long and fertile woodwind tradition. And so, I decided it was time to start talking about jazz.

That wasn't too long ago, but I have already interviewed quite a few prominent musicians, like David Binney, Mark Turner, Larry Grenadier, Loren Stillman, Perico Sambeat, Jason Palmer, Pete Robbins, Chris Cheek, Antonio Sánchez, Aruan Ortiz, Miguel Zenón, Will Vinson, Grant Stewart, Jerry Bergonzi, Dave Samuels, Avishai Cohen (tp & bassist) and many others.

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.
