IPO Recordings

We started IPO in 2004 to document the continuingly brilliant playing of great musicians from the era of “classic modern jazz.” We think of “classic modern jazz” as jazz as it was played in the period extending from the mid-1940’s to around 1970, when modal and crossover styles of playing came to dominate the music. We have showcased players who were part of the first generation of classic modern jazz, who learned the music on the bandstand with people like Dizzy Gillespie, Count Basie and Thad Jones, and who themselves made original contributions to the style. Nine of the artists we’ve recorded have been elected Jazz Masters of the National Endowment for the Arts, the nation’s highest form of recognition in the field of jazz. In most cases, these are the first (and only) recordings in which these artists played together.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
