Multi instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, arranger, video maker, surrealist, funk monkey, producer and personality Louis Cole on where he came from, what he's doing now, and where he hopes to go. Along the way he touches on writing "nostalgic music that feels almost like a memory of something that never happened," overcoming fear, being a better person, staying up late into the weird part of the night, "insanity music," money, honesty, humor, the problem with 100bpm, YouTube Poop, the spirit of jazz in his music, and what Nate Wood, Nate Smith, David Binney, Bob Mintzer, and Jack Conte have to do with any of it.
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
