MUSICIAN Born:

Wyatt Moss-Wellington

"Challenging preconceptions of song structure, guitar and vocal techniques, subject matter and stylistic homogeneity ... bounced between satire and aching tenderness, power chords and delicate finger-picking - sometimes all within one line! Moss-Wellington makes most of his peers sound like they have never fully considered the breadth of options open to them." John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald

Nicolas Meier & Dewa Budjana Group

Nicolas Meier UK-based guitarist Nicolas Meier has carved a reputation out as one of the world's most original and uniquely talented guitarists. Drawing from a love of Turkish, Eastern & Middle Eastern music, Flamenco, Tango and more — all mixed with jazz — Meier's versatility and musical fluency extends well beyond that, even. (... so much so, that his considerable talents drew the attention of rock guitar legend, Jeff Beck, who made Nicolas a mainstay in The Jeff Beck Group — carrying him on two world tours during the course of the last several years.) Meier originally hails from Switzerland; born in 1973, to parents who are great lovers of the arts

MUSICIAN Born:

Hector Rodriguez

I had the advantage in that my childhood was in the 1970s, which I believe the best stage in the music's rock history, and was the epoca of the 'super bands' or so-called 'progressive Rock' or 'symphonic Rock.' It was a time of a lot of creativity, and inspiration. The lyrics of the songs expressed concepts of life, histories and fantasies each 'disc' was a musical work. I believe that all this influenced in my taste and passion for music. That was a time that I listened to bands like Yes, Pink Floyd, EL&P, Genesis, Supertramp, Jethro Tull and others. The current of the Jazz-rock or Fusion also began to emerge from the hands of musicians like Chick Korea, Al Diemola, whom I liked very much like how he played

Guitarist Yuval Ron performs original tunes which transcend the boundaries of any specific musical genre. Inspired by a crossover of modern Jazz-Rock icons and a host of many other contemporary artists from the Progressive Rock, Fusion, Metal and modern music genres, it is all well blended into an own fresh and distinct musical direction.

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.
