R. Emmet Sweeney lives in Brooklyn and writes for the Village Voice and himself.
There are certain things that make me tingle: Randolph Scott on a horse, Jason Moran on the keys, and Anna Karina in a jump cut. I received a masters in Cinema Studies but channel most of my free time to men and women playing with their reeds.
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.
