Lover of jazz, technology and sitting in a chair, Mick merged his three passions to create All About Jazz.
A web entrepreneur with a background in information technologies, Michael Ricci combined his vocation with his love of jazz music and launched All About Jazz in 1995--a website that reaches over 500,000 readers worldwide. Over the years he has established a much deeper understanding of the industry and has continually developed web-based promotional solutions for musicians, record labels and publicists, while delivering jazz content to enthusiasts and professionals daily.
Michael spun off Jazz Near You in October 2012, a network of nearly 250 websites focused on aggregating local jazz events and syndicating them through the web, email, phone, widgets and feeds, resulting in greater local community support of the music.
He lives just outside of Philadelphia, and knows 53,433 jazz musicians by name.
