My Jazz Story

Jazz. What is jazz? “Jazz is a growing musical force. It will keep expanding and growing for many years to come.” says Mundell Lowe. ”There’s at least one element of jazz that has remained the same and that is improvisation.” says Don Friedman. Jazz is improvisation, it is alive and will stay alive! Jazz is the most vivid music the 20th century brought us.

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!
