All About Jazz creates musician discographies from deep archive of album reviews and Discogs.com API
Nearly 100,000 records seed database
All About Jazz has developed a musician discography feature which allows musicians to document and promote their body of recorded work to jazz fans worldwide.
This project was part of a larger effort to help musicians promote their music beyond their latest release, and by repurposing information from our album reviews and by importing album information from Discog.com, we were able to kickstart a project that musicians and knowledgeable fans can get behind and support," enthused Michael Ricci
, All About Jazz founder.
A musician's discography is accessed from their profile page. It also appears on a dedicated musician discography page and in the Related" musician box that is appended to an article, a news item, an event, and a photo page.
Ricci continued, We currently provide the title, the album cover art, the year released and the record label, and we include a musician's Amazon album store on their discography page, so All About Jazz can help sell their music. It's a tremendous service to our readers and to the musicians listed in our database, and we're thrilled to share this information."Musician?
