If you love the jazz trombone, imagine getting a private lesson with Urbie Green. Well, in the summer of 1968, students of Willowbrook High School in Villa Park, Ill. Were lucky enough to have that opportunity when Green—on tour to promote his new album 21 Tromones, Vol 2 (Project 3) and his King 2-B Trombone—paid a visit to Proviso West High Shool in Hillside, Ill.

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.
