Legendary Ladies of Jazz

By the 1950s, four unique women had arisen to the top of American music: Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, and Dinah Washington. Their distinctive styles and mastery changed not only the direction of jazz, but the course of popular music.

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
