All About Jazz needs your help and we have a deal. Pay $20 and we'll hide those six pesky Google ads that appear on every page, plus this box and the slideout box on the right for a full year! You'll also fund website expansion.
If an event is associated with a festival, include the festival name, otherwise, leave it blank.
All venue and festival names must match exactly how they are listed at Jazz Near You. To check a venue or festival name, go to Jazz Near You and click the "Venues." "Festivals/Series" names can be found by clicking "Businesses" on the main navigation bar then searching.
You can use the bandleader's name as the "Title" and you should repeat his/her name in the "Participating musicians" column. Use full names (and do not include their instruments).
Yes. Just click the orange "Update" button on the event's detail page or go to your Manage Events Page.
Where will my events be shown once I upload them?
At the Jazz Near You website, in the Jazz Near You weekly eblast, in the Jazz Near You iPhone app, in the Jazz Near You iCal files, in the Jazz Near You widget and in the Jazz Near You RSS feeds. Also at All About Jazz, on a musician profile page and in a "Related" (musician information) box that appears on several pages throughout the website
What's a CSV file?
"CSV" means "Comma Separated Values." And a csv file is a plain text file where each row consists of fields that are separated by commas. Learn more about csv files at Wikipedia.
I love jazz because anything is possible; it has few rules and the best jazz breaks those ones. I prefer free improv because it doesn't really have any rules at all.
I was first exposed to jazz in my teens (in the late sixties).
The first jazz record I bought was Filles de Kilimanjaro by Miles Davis, shortly followed by Extrapolation by John McLaughlin.
My advice to new listeners is to listen as widely as possible and not to make snap judgments--stick with it.
