Pauline Jean

Vocalist Pauline Jean is among the world's brightest lights. Her performances, versatility and well-conceived debut recording are very impressive. Pauline sings in English, French and Creole and she offers her own fresh approach to every song.

The stages of world-renowned clubs, jazz festivals and venues in the United States, Europe and the Caribbean have been graced with Pauline’s presence

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
