The organization is committed to record, perform, codify and promote improvisation as an integral approach to creating music and as a way of life.

Patois Records goal is to provide an outlet to artists who might be otherwise overlooked,to promote understanding in the ability to communicate, make music and stimulate artistic growth in the community.

Patois Records seeks to help educators teach jazz improvisation, and to make it easy for listeners to appreciate the music by helping them increase their knowledge, skills and repertoire.

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.
