My Jazz Story

I was first exposed to jazz when I was a kid at around 7 years old - Louis Armstrong's Cheesecake (we kids loved the way this song begins), So long, dearie; Mame; Tiger Rag, all that: I just couldn't get enough of those songs! The whole thing got to me right away, couple of years later I went to see the great OP with Martin Drew and Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen - unforgettable, just like in the song!

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!
