Keeping up with new technologies is a challenge and knowing where to spend your time on self promotion is key. The internet has, to a certain degree, leveled the playing field for promotional opportunities, but you'll need to identify where those opportunities lie and take advantage of them.
We've identified some important services that will help you establish a greater presence online and develop your fanbase, while freely promoting yourself, your music and your performance dates.

I love jazz because next to my kids, it's the love of my life.
I was first exposed to jazz by Joe Rico from a tiny station in Niagara Falls in 1954 when I was 13.
The best show I ever attended was Maynard Ferguson who blew the roof off Massey Hall in the late 50s.
My advice to new listeners is to listen to everything you can and then listen again.
