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...

Along with the celebrations of Amiri Baraka and Roy Campbell on the final day of Vision Festival 19 are several ensemble situations for piano from a duet fir Angelica Sanchez, a trio for Connie Crothers and the venerable Dave Burrell in striking quartet with Kidd Jordan, William Parker and Hamid Drake.

And the voice of Fay Victor in a drum duet makes a perfect contrast.

It is a quintessence of the Vision Festival outlook that Art for Arts has carefully nurtured through 19 of these very elaborate love labors rising from a solid ground of community rather than being imposed from above by commerce.

FREEDOM IS HARD WON (Honoring Amiri Baraka).
