Dear All About Jazz Readers,

If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.

You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

A sound that will instantly transport you back to the early twentieth century that was captured at Philadelphia’s own historic Ruba Club in a live recording with accompanying videography by Bob Sweeney
Christopher Davis-Shannon’s fervent baritone floats over the bouncing rhythms of fiddle, and upright bass in his latest single, “Daffodil." A sound that will instantly transport you back to the early twentieth century that was captured at Philadelphia's own historic Ruba Club in a live recording with accompanying videography by Bob Sweeney, appropriately filmed in 8mm.

Davis-Shannon is joined by bassist Alexandre Delcourt, and violinist Michael Durkan giving a nod to the American string bands of American music with enough modern sensibility to eschew feeling antiquated. The track is offered as a free download featuring a B side of the 1930 Jimmy McHugh, and Dorothy Fields hit “On the Sunny Side of the Street."

A modern vagabond Davis-Shannon has toured the world as a performer on stages from New Zealand to New Orleans, from Las Vegas to New York City. Not content with being labelled a traditionalist, he forges ahead with unique takes on timeless classic, as well as originals, with a sound that captivates new and old.

Hear the trio August 27th at Paris Bistro in Chestnut Hill, and join in the fun as Davis-Shannon begins hosting a traditional jam session at Fergie's Pub the last Saturday of each month, starting in September.
