Maria Schneider’s music has been hailed by critics as “evocative, majestic, magical, heart-stoppingly gorgeous, and beyond categorization.” The celebrated composer returns to Seattle after a thrilling performance during the 2018 Earshot Jazz Festival with the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra. This time she brings along her New York City-based 18-member jazz collective. One of few artists to have earned Grammys in multiple categories, she is known for defying categorization and tailoring her compositions to highlight the unique talents of her orchestra’s members.
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.
