Dear All About Jazz Readers,

If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.

You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

What was his work/practice ethic and what did he work on most?
Exactly, what did he do to prepare for his destiny?
What were his music-reading habits like?
What was it like meeting some of the great musicians of his time?
What were those conversations like?
Did he play piano, and if so, how often and what did he practice?
Where did his inspiration come from?
How often did he read the daily newspaper and what were his favorite columns?
Did he ever read books/novels and was he interested in fiction or non-fiction?

How many places have you been?

I have traveled to over 50 countries and revisited some of them several times. I have lived in three different countries besides the United States: Bogota, Colombia (two years); Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (five years); and Beijing, China (one year). I can speak three languages (Spanish, Portuguese, and English). I have enjoyed a very healthy life of travel and I look forward to more. There are so many places on this earth that are rich in different ways of life and I would like to experience them.
