We All Make Music

Music making has changed dramatically in the new millennium. What once took a room full of expensive equipment and trained expertise is now achieved on a simple laptop. Being heard all over the world once required the support of powerful, entrenched interests. Now, all it might take is a single MP3 upload.

Partly because it’s so much easier to make and distribute music now, music is everywhere. We can’t live without music. Nobody can. But everybody running this site – and, let’s be honest, everybody else out there – knows that the current system is not going to survive. And because of the role that music plays in all of our lives, we feel that the people creating it deserve the chance to keep making it and to make a living doing so.

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
