My Jazz Story

I love Jazz because it opens up a world of beauty and power. I can connect with other amazing human beings, and even animals. Music transcends all artificial barriers and helps us connect on a spiritual level. I realize that Joy, Love, Pain, Healing, Suffering, Expansion is part of every human experience...and music is the conductor that brings it all together.

My House Concert Story

Headlined at a house Concert in Brussels this past summer...well a wedding really. Language was no barrier. It was a huge mansion with 40 ft ceilings. I had three hours to rehearse with musicians I did not know, but it was divine really. The love of Jazz and music in general was obvious. I enjoyed the way press of the crowd, their spontaneous applause, and expressive delight. Honestly, I could see myself having a summer home in Brussels, and enjoying Europe at least twice a year. The wine, the people, the food, the flow of Europe is intoxicating!

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!
