Fiona's Comments

Did you hear the one about the road kill bird, trapped under the crushed car cube covered in the shamanic robe? Think Shane has just the picture for you. And the sound --a bell-like bass, that rumbles the Earth, a humming sax and an entwining rhythm section. Gorgeous.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
