My Jazz Story

Published on: 2018-01-22

I was first exposed to jazz at the age of four—my stepfather would play 78's and Lp's of Count Basie , Duke Ellington... he loved Bennie Goodman. I live and breathe jazz!

My House Concert Story

The last House concert I attended and jammed at was at a birthday celebration for Muzki Roberson in Oakland and that was right before the Pandemic shut down and all the murder of unarmed Black men and women. Before that I was in Brooklyn New York at Brownstone Jazz ... So many wonderful performers coming through there It was definitely a JOY!!!

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!
