What the critics have said:

“…a pert Francesca Amari turned “What I Did for Love” into a boldly fervent Broadway reflection.” -Variety

“Amari is a sparkling package of perky precision & vocal dynamite who seems capable of nailing any type of song she tries.” CabaretScenes Magazine

“Ms. Amari, with an abundance of self-reflective wit, and consummate vocal skill, brought us to the heart of the mystery of how and why musicians can be such a powerful force in our lives. (Her show is a) fearless celebration of her alleged squareness.” -Cabaret Nightlife Exchange

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.
