In celebration of MoMA's upcoming Jacob Lawrence “The Migration Series", Terrance McKnight hosts the Bob Stewart Double Quartet.

Over the last 40 years Bob Stewart has established himself as both an innovative tuba player and equally creative jazz educator. In addition to embracing the tuba's historical position as the original bass instrument in jazz, Mr. Stewart's focus on reintroducing the Tuba into a contemporary band setting has encouraged many tuba players and bandleaders to explore this approach.

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.
