King Tubby did not invent dub, but with hundreds—if not thousands—of sides standing witness to his wizardry—he elevated the form to an exalted level. Jamaican dub of the roots reggae era is the direct antecedent of modern remix culture, which today spans music, the visual arts, and even high technology.

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!
