When Taylor Eigsti was twelve, his idol, Dave Brubeck, told the world that Taylor was the most amazing talent he’d ever seen. Eighteen years later, it seems Dave wasn’t just whistling Dixie. Taylor’s musicianship has dazzled collaborators such as Chris Botti, Esperanza Spalding, Joshua Redman, Dave Douglas, Lee Konitz, Eric Harland, Gretchen Parlato, and others with an unbridled spirit of delight and a blindingly comprehensive mastery of seemingly every style of 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!
