About the event

Looking for platforms and tools to help define, connect and provide structure? Want to define the workforce and audiences? Want community? Let Marty Ashby, Executive Producer of MCG Jazz and Administrator for the Jazz Commons, Michael Ricci, Founder and Publisher of AllAboutJazz.com and Jean Cook, Director of Programs for the Future of Music Coalition show you some tools to help put those pieces in place. The Jazz Commons, a database that pulls together presenter, promoter, artist and audience information in one-stop learning center for jazz, and Money for Musicians, a multi-method research project to assess how musicians' revenue streams are changing in this new music landscape, are examples of what the arts community, both within and outside Jazz, can do when sharing resources.

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.
