Tex Allen

My name is Ryan Ziemba and although I am (well...was while at Berklee) a trumpet player myself, my main focus at the moment is working with Tex Allen to help share his music with others online. Best know for composing the music for “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” Tex has created and performed a lot of great music over the years and continues to do so. Since getting to know eachother over the past year, Tex and I have decided that I would do what I could to make his story, his message and his tunes more available to those interested in [re]discovering an old classic.

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!
