  • Baritone saxophonist Lauren Sevian (pictured) will give a clinic and perform with a rhythm section of local musicians at 7:00 p.m. this Thursday, April 19 at the Saxquest shop, 2114 Cherokee St. One of the busiest baritone players on the NYC scene, Sevian has been a member of the Mingus Big Band since 2003, works with numerous other groups in and around the city, and also leads two quartets of her own.

  • Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra clarinetist Diana Haskell will present a masterclass and performance at 1:00 p.m. Saturday, April 21. Haskell, who's the SLSO's Associate Principal of clarinet and E-flat clarinet, will play solo and in duets with Saxquest's clarinet specialist Audrey Denny.

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.
