Words of encouragement & praise: Words of encouragement & praise
We wanted to share some words of praise and encouragement from the folks who lent their financial support to All About Jazz. Without them, there would be no AAJ.

  • "Jazz is very important to me and I appreciate what you do for everything jazz related!" —Mark B.

  • "I don't know what we'd do without ya'll! Keep up the good work!" —Kate M.

  • "Supporting All About Jazz is supporting jazz itself." —Bob C.

  • "I appreciate the great service this site provides for musicians like me." —Scott S.

  • "This is a great website and it deserves funding." —John A.

  • "AAJ is the ultimate connection to jazz." —Rod H.

  • "Great website, I use it all the time and appreciate the work you all do in supporting jazz music." —Andrew S.

  • "All About Jazz fills a significant need." —Carolyn S.

  • "Thank you for your dedication to the jazz world." —Lewis F.

  • "Because you are essential to jazz radio programmers." —Roberto B.

  • "All About Jazz is so important to the music community!" —Christopher P.

  • "I've always loved listening to and playing jazz. I admire your support of the music and the musicians." —Dan D.

  • "Happy to help. AAJ is a great resource and we are all in this together!" —Hot Club of Philadelphia

And here's a nice note that arrived today. From a reader who voted in our Living Drummers Poll...

Thanks for the clarification on the poll, Michael! Very much appreciated.

I did not expect a reply so soon, nor directly from you. Having watched (rather silently and without participating) AAJ's growth & expansion over some years, I can't imagine the volume of your tasks. So a quick, personal reply is nearly as surprising as it's appreciated.

Thanks for making the additions, providing the links, fixing Mr. Puente's designation... wow, I'm impressed.

I can't let it go unacknowledged that you responded just amazingly well to a guy, me, who has barely had contact with AAJ. I was participating so casually and uncharacteristically that I expected a long wait for a reply. You provided amazing (there's that word again!) customer service, and I'm not even one.

Thanks again,
Bill C.
