Now, More Than Ever, Musicians Need Your Support.

These are extraordinary times yet one thing is certain… music connects communities. Due to this pandemic, understandably, all live performances have been cancelled until further notice. Yet, it's these very performances that provide the musicians income. Currently, most governments have not offered much in the form of financial support to their respective self-employed arts sector.

You can help!

While on lockdown we ask you to consider that instead of the jazz concert or festival ticket you planned to purchase, that you re-channel funds to buy music directly from independent jazz musicians.

To facilitate this, All About Jazz along with our good friends at Jazz In Europe (Andrew Read and Nigel Farmer) are acting as a conduit, bridging the invisible gap to connect you with the jazz musicians you choose to support. So, please browse the releases listed on this page and buy them from the artists. Each album listed on the page includes a direct link to the artists Bandcamp page or their website.

Remember.....You can’t quarantine music!

Musician?

List your album with us, so we can promote it and help you generate sales.

Step 1
If you have a musician page at All About Jazz, please make sure your album has been uploaded (learn how here—scroll to steps 1-2-3).

Step 2
Also, email your album information to Jazz In Europe so they can list it on their Buy Jazz Direct page. Email Andrew and Nigel at [email protected] (subject: Buy Jazz Direct Submission). They'll need the title and your preferred retail link (e.g. CD Baby or Bandcamp) so they can upload it here.

Over the coming weeks, we'll regularly reach out to our combined readership asking everyone for their support!

Thanks for purchasing this music direct from the artist!

Your friends at All About Jazz & Jazz In Europe!

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
