If you have a strong interest in jazz with some free time to spare, consider joining the All About Jazz and Jazz Near You team. It's an opportunity to establish your voice as part of our shared mission while taking advantage of some great networking opportunities to meet knowledgeable writers, editors, techies, musicians, industry pros, visual artists and active supporters of the music from around the globe.
Many of our staff members have been with us since 1995. They've supported the music and have been continually rewarded for their efforts as we've grown to become the most read and most influential jazz website in the world.
With reinvention and expansion in mind, we invite you to join us on our journey to support the music, spread the word, and have fun.
What We Do:
Cover live shows and festivals;
Review albums, DVDs, films, and books;
Raise the awareness of Jazz Near You to better serve local jazz communities;
Mine and validate data;
Upload photos, illustrations and paintings;
Archive papers, book excerpts and previously published material.
Returning the favor
We greatly appreciate our staff's efforts and we work with them to secure music and other promotional materials like books, access to film premieres and DVDs, press credentials to events, and secure paid writing assignments. Not to mention, you'll join an eclectic and talented team of writers and editors, and you'll gain access to the largest jazz readership on the planet. As writer/contributor Richard Salvucci put it, "My Doug Mettome article would have been read by 16 people at my blog. At AAJ, it was read over 4,000 times in two weeks!"
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!
