Many more to come in what obviously will be a large category.

All About Jazz
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.

The Jazz Journalists Association
The Jazz Journalists Association (JJA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation that supports the creation and dissemination of accurate, balanced, ethical and informative journalism on all of jazz’s genres and encourages the creative use of media to spur the growth, development and education of the audience for jazz. It is a membership-supported organization, providing forums for the discussion of jazz-related issues and events, fostering the development of journalistic and presentation skills among emerging journalists (writers, photographers, broadcasters, videographers, and new media users) as well as offering opportunities and encouraging the development of new skills — including knowledge of online and social medi — to journalists already engaged in the field.

West Music
Our goal isn’t to link to music training, though we cover sites that focus on musicians and the Web. That said, we also cheat. This looks like a good collection: “For classic string compositions, books on jazz saxophone method, beginner horn pieces, performance guides for seasonal music and much more, West Music has cultivated a wonderfully diverse selection of musical texts. These books are perfect for all skill levels and compatible with many different jazz, stage band and orchestral instruments. Students can improve their musicianship by playing along with etudes from the classical canon or through transcribed pieces from contemporary film and popular music. Browse our collection of specialized sheet music and find the right book for you or your students!
