An Open Letter to Musicians: Lemme Hear It!

Read "An Open Letter to Musicians: Lemme Hear It!" reviewed by Dave Sumner

Read "Publicist? How to Maximize Your Client's Coverage at All About Jazz" reviewed by Michael Ricci

All About Jazz was part of the 2012 APAP JazzConnect track and participated in the “Platforms That Move Jazz Forward“ session. One clear takeaway for me was learning that some publicists don't fully understand how to use All About Jazz to positively impact a client's promotional campaign.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
