Mississippi Heat: Warning Shot

Read "Warning Shot" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

My father, born in 1915 and having seen and heard such, would call Warning Shot “Roadhouse Music."

Mississippi Heat: Hattiesburg Blues

Read "Hattiesburg Blues" reviewed by Nic Jones

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.
