Jazz Near You—the web's leading jazz event aggregator—now imports events uploaded by musicians through GigPress—the WordPress calendar plugin.

Musicians including trumpeter Dave Douglas and saxophonist Donny McCaslin, both GigPress users, now see their dates uploaded to Jazz Near You within 24 hours of uploading them to the Greenleaf Music website.

If you are a jazz musician and use GigPress, please send Michael Ricci your website URL. Your Gigpress RSS feed location is typically located here: http://www.yourdomainname.com/?feed=gigpress.

States Ricci, “WordPress is widely considered the leading content management platform and it's used by hundreds of jazz musicians worldwide. Reading a musician's GigPress feed is significant and represents another step towards our commitment to building the most comprehensive jazz events calendar on the internet."
