More polls and other assorted nuggets

More polls and other assorted nuggets: More polls and other assorted nuggets
From time to time, we share some recent news that might ordinarily fly under the radar. I also want to briefly touch on some plans for 2022.

Two AAJ-Curated Spotify Playlists

We recently launched The Jazz Menagerie Spotify playlist (more about that here)—we also created Yule Dig It, an all-instrumental jazz Christmas playlist. Since it's launch, we've added over a dozen more songs. Give it a listen and if you dig it, like it.

Feel free to make playlist suggestions by posting in the comments section below

Recent Poll Results and more Polling Plans for 2022

We published the results from our "musical and lyrical sophistication in jazz and other genres" reader poll here. Considering the voters, the winner wasn't surprising but the analysis, especially about pop music and Genesis (the band) makes for an interesting read.

The other All About Jazz poll results, which includes Top Jazz Cities, Top Venues, Top Record Labels and Fantasy Festivals are here. Starting in January, look for a series of "favorite" polls where readers will have the opportunity to vote for favorite musicians by instrument.

Search Songs by Record Label

We added an additional search criteria to Song of Day. In addition to musician name, you can search songs by record label. Try a search (by clicking the Songs & Videos tab) here. Type in Origin Records then select it from the auto-complete box. Once you see the results, scroll down to "The Alchemist" by Scott Reeves—click to listen and enjoy!

Get To Know Us

If you're curious to learn who actively contributes to All About Jazz, just click the Staff Directory link in the footer of any AAJ page. Just last week, we made writer info more accessible by popping up a window when you click their byline photo or byline name on any article page. Like this...

Jazz Near You

We're on the verge of relaunching an optimized version of Jazz Near You. In addition to an improved structure that includes sitemaps, we also made other feature refinements. We'll explore helping venues sell additional tickets to their concerts in 2022.
