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...

After a busy start to 2017, vocalist Laurin Talese is preparing for her next series of performances to usher in spring, marked by a return to the legendary Minton’s Harlem on March 24th. She has enjoyed several sold-out shows at not only Minton’s, but also venues in Philadelphia and Atlanta as well. Most recently, Talese was handpicked to perform as part of The ASCAP Foundation’s showcase, “Songwriters: The Next Generation” at Washington, D.C.’s esteemed Kennedy Center. Later this spring, she joins the line up at the Art of Cool Fest in Durham, NC on April 29th, followed by her first show at the Soiled Dove Underground in Denver, CO on May 12th.

Talese’s first concerts of the New Year were carefully curated to honor singing legend, Nancy Wilson. Key elements of these performances remain in her current show, as well as repertoire from her debut album entitled, Gorgeous Chaos, released in 2016. The recording features Adam Blackstone, Robert GlasperChristian McBrideUlysses Owens, Jr., and longtime collaborator Eric Wortham II, among others, and was named one of the top ten Jazz albums of the year in the Chicago Tribune. Upon its debut, Gorgeous Chaos ranked highly on Billboard’s jazz charts as well.

Talese is planning a host of appearances throughout the year, as well as new material to be released in the coming months.
