Join us for a relaxed afternoon of music, mirth and memories as we salute Zoot Sims, Al Cohn and all of the amazing musicians who frequented the jazz lofts in New York City in the fifties and sixties, particularly the infamous digs at 821 Sixth Avenue where W. Eugene Smith made his incredible photographs and historic tape recordings. This festive celebration will also officially welcome the Zoot Sims special collection to ESU, where the legacies of Al and Zoot are being reunited within the Al Cohn Memorial Jazz Collection.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
