Falling in Love with Jazz

Read "Falling in Love with Jazz" reviewed by Jennifer DeMeritt

This week we dive into the music that got me hooked on jazz, from crossover hits like Miles Davis' Bitches Brew and Dave Brubeck's “Take Five" to maybe lesser-known, but equally fabulous, tracks by Marc Ribot, Dave Holland, and more.

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.
