Curt designed and maintains the Internet's most comprehensive resource for jazz guitarists and ukulele players. Here is what jazz guitarist Joe Finn had to say about the site: “One of the internet's most comprehensive resources for the jazz guitarist is jazzguitarresources.com where you will find outstanding information about luthiers, instructional materials, instruments, and the musicians themselves. I especially like the new interview section. Webmaster Curt Sheller, who is also a terrific guitarist, has done the jazz guitar community a great service with this fine site.”

As a jazz guitarist Curt performs in and around the Philadelphia area solo and in a variety of duo and trio settings.

As a ukulele player Curt has performed and given workshops at several annual ukulele festivals across the US including Indianapolis, New York City, Los Angeles, and Baltimore.

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.
