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...

Pyeng Threadgill sings "New Porch Music" crafting an intimate journey through folk and jazz with afro-electronic inflections. Her fourth solo album and multimedia project entitled Head Full of Hair, Heart Full of Song, shines a light on hair, adornment and ancestry, and the societal and political as well as spiritual conflicts therein. Since 2004, Pyeng has released three other albums journeying from blues to jazz, folk to soul and spoken word: Sweet Home: The Music of Robert Johnson (Random Chance), Of the Air (Random Chance), Portholes to a Love & Other Short Stories, which was awarded a fellowship in Music Composition from New York Foundation For the Arts.
