Ori Dagan

Frequently humorous, Ori’s original songs have won him fans, from the ode to a search engine “Googleable” to the anthem for the rhythmically challenged “Clap on the 2 and the 4.” His Shakespeare-inspired song “Sweetheart,” co-written with guitarist Nathan Hiltz, was awarded Best Jazz Song at the 2018 American Songwriting Awards

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.
