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 selection of Roger Aldridge's original music can be heard at rogeraldridge.com. In addition, to recordings and videos, the new site includes the latest news about his music projects, biography, articles, and a page having a featured composition each week.

One of the articles at Roger's site describes his concepts of writing for mid-size jazz ensemble. As he envisions it, a mid-size ensemble can be approached in fundamentally different ways than with a conventional big band. That is, going beyond a “little big band" concept. Roger has written a series of scores for mid-size ensemble. They use flexible instrumentation to enable the music to be performed by many configurations of instruments.

Roger's website was designed to be active, updated at least weekly, and to encourage interaction between visitors and Roger.
