some seasoned players mostly young their saxophones slung at hour hand angles lightning rods bringing the sound to ground wait at electrified attention to play with the small stage piano eyes unfocused listen learn blow their hearts out a horn break the chains of Sonny and Trane reinvent the language a phrase at a time bite the reed to the rubber breathe warm life into cold brass alchemy then back benched bathed in offstage light pensive patience prays to find salvation in a song
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!
