Ayo started his music career at the age of 18, while enlisted in the military.

He started his musical exploits as a trombonist with the Nigerian Army School of Music, having completed a course of instruction in the same institution.

Ayo later resigned from the Army out of the desire to make His music more purposeful, he started playing the saxophone in 1995.

“Since MAN has become the battleground for negative and positive forces, the influence of any of these will determine the output of an individual” hence my decision to join the positive force 'THE KINGDOM OF GOD'.

“Playing Jazz teaches self esteem and independence” 'TRUE', so says Jameys Aebersold,a Jazz music instructor.

As a Jazz music player, Iam also convinced that listening to jazz music backed up with lyrics of the Kingdom, will not only enhance self esteem and independence but bring forte a lifestyle of productivity and fruitfulness.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
