Meeco

MEECO “Grasp of idiom and phrasing and singular feel for writing material sensitive to tone and color.” (Latin Jazz Network) “Transboundary, musicality and sensitivity” (All About Jazz) These are just but a few of the accolades describing the talents of the German-born, producer/composer and citizen of Paris, France - “Meeco” aka Michael Maier.

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.
