My Jazz Story

Published on: 2017-02-20

I love jazz because it's the only music that really speaks to me. I was first exposed to jazz in my late teens. The best show I ever attended was Steve Turre and Sanctified Shells. The first jazz record I bought was Bitches Brew. My advice to new listeners is to buy a broad spectrum of jazz and then go deep on what you love the best. I have a big collection, and so that I get to hear my favorite stuff frequently, I create lots of playlists. I mostly listen to my collection through my MacBook Pro which goes through a great sound system.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
