Standing Up for Jazz – About the Promoters


Readers might wonder where I learn about the jazz artists to feature here.

I’m going to split the credit: sometimes, it’s somebody who is referred to me by another musician I’ve already interviewed, or I come across some amazing jazz and I’m merely compelled to reach out and touch the person responsible.

The other way is from all the **promoters** out there who do a fantastic job getting the word out. This is certainly and jazzily to the benefit of all!

Some of my many sources appear below, along with my continued thanks. Please check out the links to all interviews!
