Stefan Aeby Stefan Aeby

The dream of a perfect world. A world of freedom. Of equality. Of self- realization. A world in flux and rebirth. Curiosity as well as the search for consistency and familiarity. Big becomes small and limits disappear. Everything seems possible…

And in the middle of this: a piano trio.

A trio which dreams of being free, but still together. A trio with a curious and open spirit that allows limits to disappear without losing its roots.

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.
