Ben also extended his musical family, which led him to perform in many European music festivals including “Montreux Jazz Festival", “Jazz a Juan" and “Jazz a Vienne". After graduating in the fall of 97, he performed all over the East coast and taught at Northeastern University in Boston until he moved to New York in 2000

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
