Lars Hansen

Lars Hansen ble født 17. april 1991 i Oslo, Norge. Foreldrene hans lærte ham å uttrykke sin kjærlighet til naturen vi har rundt oss. Lars mor og far jobbet som musikere og de tok ofte barnet med seg til konserter. Dette var ikke bare konserter på festivaler, motevisninger, men de også tok bilder for vitenskapstidsskrifter. Bokstavelig da Lars var ett år, tilbrakte gutten mye tid i naturen, besøkte ofte forskjellige vakre steder ikke bare i Norge men også i utlandet. Siden barndommen liker Lars å reise og konserter så mye. Foreldre lærte sønnen alt om konserter. Derfor deltok Lars allerede i skoleårene ofte i forskjellige konserter hvor han ofte tok førsteplassen. Lars gikk på barneskolen i Oslo

Gary Porter

Following on from his critically acclaimed album ‘Can’t Keep Still’, which gained his band play listing on BBC Radio Two, Gary has strived to develop his music further with his new album by engaging high class musicianship for the recording on these new songs. Lisa Mills who is gaining massive popularity within the UK and is in as much demand on the live circuit as she is back in her home state of Alabama added her superb vocals to several tracks. Fresh from his involvement on the Roger Daltry / Wilko Johnson hit album ‘Going Back Home’ Steve West Weston added his harmonica to the track ‘’Steamtrain Blues’. The brass section comprised two of the country’s finest players in Graeme Turner ( Steve Marriott, Robert Plant, The Equals amongst many more ) and Lee Badau from ‘The James Hunter Six’.

Philip Czarnecki

Hey there! I'm Philip - I'm a guitarist, composer and educator living in Cologne (Germany). Although my guitar-playing and composing is highly jazz influenced, you probably won't argue to hear lots of other influences in my music. What Santana once said about Coltrane: "He´s playing life!" does definitely apply to me as well. My life has always been full with Rock, Funk, Blues, Soul and Hip Hop. So that's all me, I´d say... I started by playing Classical guitar though, then became a youth-student at the Conservatory of Hamburg (Germany), my hometown, first and went on to do my Bachelor and Master Degree in Jazz Guitar at the Conservatory of Amsterdam (The Netherlands).​ During the course of my career I won a bunch of prizes for both my guitar-playing and my (Bigband-) compositions and I was lucky to share the stage with fantastic musicians in numerous European countries and in South Africa and India. I am leading my trio PC ENERGETIC, just released a solo-guitar single and am working closely with the Neo-Soul singer Rakel Salazar and also do other projects & session work.

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.
