If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.
You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...
Spirited saxophonist Michael Lington and his feisty band presented an entertaining evening of hip contemporary music fueled by classic Memphis/Stax soul power at the welcoming Blue Note Napa. All the contented club customers merrily strolled into the pleasant wine country night. The show was definitely worth the drive up from the Bay Area.
Post Script: This concert was covered the night before the massive Northern California brush fires started. We wish all the families and friends affected by the devastating wild fires in NorCal's Wine Country a safe and speedy recovery.
Ken Tesler, BNN stated: "As the smoke clears and the fires are being contained, we are working very hard to re-open our doors as soon as possible, welcome back the community and visitors, and remain #NapaStrong and #SonomaProud."
All of us here at Blue Note Napa want to express our sincere condolences to the residents of the Napa/Sonoma areas that have been affected by this devastating disaster, and we are thankful for the outpouring of concern from our friends and family, artists, and patrons. We are forever grateful to the heroic First Responders, both local and those from around the country, who battled day and night, and in some areas, continue to do so."
I love jazz because it takes my mind away and is very relaxing.
I was first exposed to jazz by my older brother every morning while eating breakfast before school he would play Hiroshima One which I hated but after he moved away to college and I moved to Miami I fell in love with jazz music.
