My first exposure to music was as a first grader, my mom got me some accordion lessons. That didn't last long, I managed to avoid music until high school, where I got my first exposure to playing jazz tunes and improvising over form, as well as learning to read music. I did the usual high school/ college thing of playing electric bass in rock to fusion bands while taking "classical" theory and harmony at the local college .

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.
