”Aus, I think, deserves a nice heaping of praise for both his composing and his keyboard playing.” Mike Osegueda, Fresno Bee, March 5, 2012. http://fresnobeehive.com/archives/8169

On the performance of Philip Levine and the Benjamin Boone Quartet with David Aus on keyboards: “A one-of-a-kind event, a singular experience, an understated but profoundly moving hometown homage built on sturdy pillars of respect and devotion. If you weren’t there, you missed a moment in Fresno history.” Donald Munro, Fresno Bee, March 19, 2012 http://fresnobeehive.com/archives/10559

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
