Roulette

Roulette's original and ongoing purpose has been to provide opportunities for innovative composers, musicians, and interdisciplinary collaborators to present their work in accessible, appropriate, and professional concert productions. The organization is committed to supporting work by young and emerging artists as well as by established innovators.

Roulette also collaborates with other presenters in order to provide opportunities for large-scale works and extended runs. Between 50 and 90 concerts are presented each year, and since 1978 Roulette has presented almost 1000 concerts in its New York facility. Artists represent an extremely broad range of disciplines and backgrounds, a large percentage perform their own work, and nearly all concerts feature world premieres. Programs are chosen in direct response to current activity in the field and with careful consideration toward a balanced, inclusive season. Roulette also assists artists to realize special projects with potential impact on their careers. This is done through the commissioning of new works, encouraging collaborations, and arranging co-presentations in facilities suitable for larger or intermedia works.

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.
