As an MTV host, singer, author, songwriter and producer, China is first and foremost an eclectic artist who embodies the American idea of an entertainer. This aspect of her personality can be traced to her childhood, steeped in music and the world of theatre. From her mother, the singer Dee Dee Bridgewater, she inherited the ability to work towards long-term goals.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
