Nacka Forum: We Are The World

In fact, the success of The Half Naked Truth 1998-2008 could result in inquiries into the remainder of the 40 hours of live recordings and session ...

Jonas Kullhammar/Goran Kajfes/Johan Berthling/Kjell Nordeson: Nacka Forum

Read "Nacka Forum" reviewed by Farrell Lowe

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.
