The Greater Hartford Festival of Jazz's mission is to expose and educate our ever-growing audiences and to celebrate America's only true art form, JAZZ, by presenting over twenty-five hours of music performed by internationally acclaimed artists. Wonderful world-class musicians will grace the main stage of the Thomas Harris IV Pavillon in Bushnell Park during the 2009 Festival.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
