Brilliant Corners: Jazz and Its Cultures will explore the music's connections to the other arts and will feature many of the world's most prominent jazz scholars. Twenty-five speakers will be addressing the many ways in which the music of jazz intersects with currents in art, literature, film, theater, and politics. Rounding out the event will be performances by pianist Vijay Iyer, trombonist Ray Anderson, and tenor saxophonist Joe Lovano on the three conference evenings as well as an exhibition of jazz paintings and photographs that will run from April 1st to May 9th.

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.
