My Jazz Story

Published on: 2019-03-17

I love jazz because it's the only music art form that offers opportunity to be totally free and expresses every human aspect.

My House Concert Story

October 20, 2018, Rays of Hope Benefit Concert for Breast Cancer. Hawks & Reeds Performing Arts Center, Greenfield Massachusetts helped to host a Jazz Showcase. This benefit concert presented three newly developed jazz acts: Jacob Smith & newly formed jazz trio ( Isosceles Groove ), Springfield's .

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.
