Read "Spiritual Knowledge And Grace" reviewed by Sid Smith

Accidents are part and parcel of any kind of improvised music. Such occurrences can be fickle things with a capacity to make or break a situation.

Read "Blues And Haikus" reviewed by Sid Smith

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.
