My Jazz Story

I love jazz because... it is heart and head, past and future, predictable and spontaneous I was first exposed to jazz... at home, with friends, in my teens I met ... John Scofield, Mike Stern, Michael Brecker, lots of UK players The first jazz record I bought was... Miles Davis - Decoy My advice to new listeners... Don't get trapped by a narrow definition of jazz. Go with what you love - you can find funky, global, electronic or any style of jazz. It's the chance to improvise that makes the music different, and each track unique because by design it will never be the same again. Or whatever else you have in mind.

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!
