All About Jazz, with the help of musicians, record labels and publicists, add new jazz albums to our database every day and we've added close to 160,000 albums since 2015.
You can read more about the seeds of our discography project here
. In this article, we'll explain how to add, update, and delete albums associated with a musician page.
Our goal is to help musicians sell their music by presenting their discography and by making their albums searchable at All About Jazz.
We recently completed several discographies prior to launching the feature (in 2015): the Charlie Haden
and Jason Moran
discographies are two good examples. Check them out to view the possibilities.
If you're a musician, simply follow the instructions below to upload albums and complete your discography:
All About Jazz is home to over 120 musician pages, so it's possible your page already exists (search here
). If it does, claim it, so you can update it. If it does not, create it here
. If you already have a musician page and have administrative access, move on to step 2.
From your musician page, click the blue button on a standard page or the orange button on a premium page; For standard pages, click the "Events / Photos / Tracks " tab then click "Upload Album."
Once your albums have been uploaded return to your musician page and click the "Albums" section header to view your entire discography. You can add albums from this page as well.
The yellow "BUY" button currently links to an Amazon page. You can override the Amazon link with a store of your choosing after upgrading to the premium musician page service
Sounds easy, but how long does it really take?
No time at all. It's your music, you know it best, so completing your discography will vary depending on volume; but expect the uploading of one album from scratch takes a minute.
With the completion of the album personnel upgrade project
, albums now support leaders, co-leaders, and side personnel.
