Giveton Gelin

Pursuing jazz is difficult when you lack an environment to develop in the Bahamas, but since the age of 10 Giveton Gelin has taught himself how to play the trumpet simply by emulating what he would hear on his favorite records. Despite years of self-tutelage it wasn't until he saw double bass player Adrian D'Aguilar playing live that Giveton realised "there was a place for jazz in the Bahamas!"

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
