Steven Kroon

I’ve been a professional musician for the last 30 years. I was born in Harlem and lived there until the age of ten. From Harlem we moved to St. Albans, Queens. The year was 1957. My experience of being raised in Queens was very influential. At the time there were many great jazz and R&B artists living right in our neighborhood. At home I would mostly listen to my father’s music, which was Tito Puente, Tito Rodriguez, and Machito. Then when I would visit my friends, I would listen to all the great jazz artists. Right in my neighborhood was Lester Young, Eddie Lockjaw Davis, Count Basie and many more

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
