Described as a modern-day Hoagy Carmichael, Grammy-nominated pianist, composer and impresario JC Hopkins has cultivated a multi-generational ensemble of jazz titans drawing from a range of talent that spans multiple generations. The group recently recorded Meet Me At Minton’s – a compilation of classic big band hits amongst a string of scintillating originals. The album features the late jazz poet laureate Jon Hendricks, alongside Grammy-award winning vocalist Andy Bey, Thelonious Monk Vocal Competition winner Jazzmeia Horn and co-founder of legendary funk duo Sister Sledge, Kathy Sledge, the aptly titled Meet Me At Minton’s displays a powerhouse of esteemed vocalists, ranging from emerging prodigies to accomplished veterans of jazz.
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!
