My Jazz Story

I love jazz because... It makes me relax. It makes me want to dance. It`s got great rhythm. Improvisation. Two favorites: Billie Holiday and Charlie Parker. I also would like to recommend Justin Townes Earle to people. You may not think of him as a jazz artist. It may be correct. Nonetheless, He mixed a lot of styles, including jazz, folk, country and soul. A great artist and songwriter. I was first exposed to jazz... I met [musician name]... The best show I ever attended was... The first jazz record I bought was... Bird - The Original Recordings Of Charlie Parker My advice to new listeners... Or whatever else you have in mind.

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!
