About this image

Downtown music impressario Glenn Leslie sits down with legendary jazz guitarist Bern Nix to discuss issues small and large in the world of jazz. Nix is humble and wise, does not suffer fools ('specially in the music business), has the amusingly cynical tone familiar to working musicians, has a sharp historical viewpoint, and picks a number of tracks to illustrate the conversation. A detailed transcript full of discussion about his own influences and further observations on music including a discussion of Ornette Colman's Harmolodic theory, of which Bern Nix is a master, appears online at

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!
