Dear All About Jazz Readers,

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...


Nenad Georgievski's Best of 2015

Nenad Georgievski By

2015 was not an easy year. I became a dad for the third time while I was working on a Film festival for music documentaries. The festival itself was an uphill battle, but I managed to get it organized with astounding success. In the meantime I was writing constantly or was listening to music, as if my life depended on it. The Top 10 is actually a process of sifting through hundreds of records and panning for gold. Plenty of vinyl, streaming, CDs downloads and a great deal of books. 2015 was a good year.
