Musicians such as vibraphonist Joe Lockeand pianist John Beasley, both WordPress and GigPress users, now see their dates posted to All About Jazz within 24 hours of adding them to their website.
If you are a musician or presenter and use WordPress/GigPress, please forward your GigPress RSS feed to Michael Ricci for inclusion in the All About Jazz nightly import.
Says Ricci, WordPress is one of the top content management tools and it's used by hundreds of jazz musicians and presenters. Reading the GigPress feed is significant and adds value to our increasingly popular calendar service."

About All About Jazz
All About Jazz is the leading jazz event aggregator on the internet, importing dates through its standard XML feed format, through the GigPress RSS feed and through direct submissions. Dates appear on the All About Jazz local calendar page, on the bottom of every All About Jazz page, on a venue / festival / presenter listing page and on a musician's profile page. Dates are pushed to mobile.allaboutjazz.com and soon jazznearyou.com as well as other aggregator websites.
GigPress is a powerful live performance listing and management WordPress plugin designed for musicians and other performers.
WordPress started in 2003 with a single bit of code to enhance the typography of everyday writing and with fewer users than you can count on your fingers and toes. Since then it has grown to be the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day.
WordPress core developers share a love of jazz music, and since WordPress 1.0 all major releases are named in honor of jazz musicians they admire.
