The Helsinki-based record label and festival We Jazz presents an explosive lineup at Ääniwalli on 18 January. MAKAYA MCCRAVEN, often called the foremost "beat scientist" in today's jazz circles, presents his new program "In These Times". Helsinki's very own TIMO LASSY opens up the proceedings with his rarely heard trio formation featuring Ville Herrala on bass and Jaska Lukkarinen on drums. On top of that, WE JAZZ DJs will serve the best jazz vinyl in town and beyond.

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.
