In addition to rocks, mulch and grass, Ted enjoys gnawing on a good pig's ear.

About Me

I grew up on a steady diet of Bill Frisell and other hillbilly jazz. My enormous ears were initially sensitive to the more dissonant sounds, but I've adapted nicely over the years. Just the other day I listened to Cecil Taylor and for the first time didn't feel compelled to destroy something.

My Jazz Story

I love jazz because... I was first exposed to jazz... I met [musician name]... The best show I ever attended was... The first jazz record I bought was... 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!
