”Arthur Satyan, the Dean of Jazz musicians living in Lebanon was the melodic wheel of 'Three Wheel Drive' the now legendary trio that instructed and inspired a generation of young Lebanese Jazz musicians. He was the pianist that Jazz stars like Larry Coryell, John Hicks, Sonny Fortune and Charles Davis came to Beirut eager to hear and play with.”

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
