Patuxent Music

Patuxent Music is the creation of Tom Mindte (MSEE) a versatile musician, bandleader, and studio engineer whose musical abilities and tastes cover a wide variety of styles. The common denominator is authenticity, an attribute difficult to define but easy enough for the listener to hear. Whether it's a fiddler playing an old mountain hoedown, a bluesman singing “Key To The Highway” or a jazz combo playing Duke Ellington, the music is always real, always true to the style, always compelling to hear.

Those who record for Patuxent Music have unparalleled control over what material they will record, who the studio musicians will be, and how the mix should sound. This level of artistic freedom, all too rare nowadays,allows the music to flow freely and assures that the recording captures the artist in pure, undiluted form.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
