BluePort Jazz with Jim Merod is a multimedia website jazz magazine that features current information on jazz recordings, recent and classical, as well as in-depth commentary related to behind-the-scenes activity in the world of jazz.

The jazz web journal premiers high-resolution original jazz and blues recordings in the BluePort Jazz Archive. The site is interactive, downloadable, and highlights advanced multimedia files that combine video, audio, graphics, and scrollable text. In fact, it is the first extensive jazz journal on the web. The focus of BluePort Jazz with Jim Merod is to explore interactions among recording, listening, creating, and interpreting the still fresh reality of jazz: a hundred year old art form that carries a great deal of the significance of twentieth-century experience.

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!
