    In case you missed it, here’s a video of one of our latest Teen Jazz Artists, Carlos Vargas. Find out how to apply to come an artist here. You may be featured in our next post!

    We Want to Work With You!

    If you have a music product or a new album coming out soon, or you’re looking to get more attention for your existing catalog, let’s talk about working together!

    For as little as $5 a month, you can advertise with us on Teen Jazz. And that $5 goes a long way. Not only will you have a featured ad on our site, but you’ll also get social media mentions throughout the duration of your sponsorship.

    Work with Us

    Who advertises with us? Music companies (accessories, gear, instruments), artists promoting a new album or their artist website, music publishing companies, music stores and resellers, music promoters, concerts and other music events.

    Who reads Teen Jazz? Up and coming musicians from around the world ranging from their teens to adulthood. Our readers are musicians just starting out in the music industry and even those who are already established and are looking for more information on the music business.

    If you’re interested in checking out some of our sponsored posts, see what we’ve put together for Claude Lakey, Lessonface, and KDI Music.

    Ad space is available for one month ad slots, but if you’re interested in purchasing several months up-front, we offer bonuses based on the amount of time reserved.

    We currently have two sidebar ad spaces available – learn more here.

    We’re Also Looking for Contributing Writers

    We are also currently looking for guest posts. You can find more information and our guidelines here.

  • What We’re Listening to This Month | Jun 2015

    It’s time for our listening list for the month of June! It has been a while since our last update – we shared a playlist back in February – so we’re definitely overdue!

    Every few months we try to feature a few songs or albums that we’re listening to here at Teen Jazz. We’ll showcase the playlists of our host, Shannon Kennedy, as well as a few of our Teen Jazz Artists, Contributors and Influences. We hope you enjoy getting an inside look, and even more importantly, we hope you discover some great music!


     

    Shannon Kennedy, Teen Jazz Host

    Joshua Redman Joshua Redman

    Lately I’ve really gotten back into Joshua Redman. I’ve been listening to his self-titled album, Joshua Redman, from 1993 on Warner Bros. It has a lot of really great tracks on it and I love his cover of the James Brown classic “I Got You.” It’s a favorite of mine, but his albums like Elastic are also at the top of my list.

     

    Dan Siegel Indigo

    I also enjoyed a cd we recently reviewed here on Teen Jazz, Dan Siegel’s “Indigo” and it’s been a part of my playlist for a few months now. Some really great original tunes are on this album and we definitely recommend it.

    Adrian Crutchfield Private Party

    Lastly I’d like to mention that I’ve been listening to a project by one of the artists who contributed to this post – Adrian Crutchfield. He’s got a great project out called “Private Party.” It’s a fun listen. Adrian is a talented, up and coming player. You can check out our interview with him here.

     


    Adam Fallen, Teen Jazz Artist

    Right now I’ve been listening to a lot of Chris Dave Drum Hedz. I love how experimental that group is and they all listen to each other so well. The groove they keep while entering different songs and metric modulations is incredible. Especially a big fan of Chris Dave and Isaiah Sharkey. The mix and sound that Isaiah has going on is so unique and new yet classic and shares similar sounds to George Benson and Joe Pass but with a funky gospel twist.

    I am also listening a lot to Kendrick Lamar’s newest album, To Pimp A Butterfly [Clean], which I’m obsessed with. I’m already a huge hip hop fan and the album is reminiscent of classic funk and jazz sounds interwoven throughout the highly creative hip hop grooves. The album is so thematic and conceptual which I really want to do with my upcoming EP to be released. The level of musicianship, production, composing, and song writing on the record is insane and I love that they took time to make the record and didn’t rush through it.

    I am listening to the album “Livin’ the Luxury Brown” by Mint Condition. I was brought to it after finding out it was a record with Chris Dave on it that I hadn’t heard. I really dig this record because it’s a classic 90’s r&b soul vibe and sound but the groove and pocket is so thick on the album and it’s just feel good dance music with great musicians.

    Well, I don’t really stay up to date on music. I just play what I like, no matter how old or new it may be. My playlists usually consist of a variety of stuff… from Esperanza Spalding, Anthony Hamilton, Mos Def, some Usher – (the entire 8701 album and some of Confessions;) and Biggie and Pac…. to silly stuff like the soundtrack to A Goofy Movie (Tevin Campbell’s Stand Out, and Eye to Eye). Sometimes my playlist might be Tower of Power, Michael Jackson, Luther Vandross, or a group called Emogen Heap. I guess I’m eclectic?

  • Do You Have an Album Out?

    Today I thought I’d do something a little different and open Teen Jazz up to you.

    Do you have an album out?

    If not, what about a single or an EP?

    So if you have an album or project out, feel free to tell us about it in the comments and share a link to where we can listen or purchase your music! You can share a link to your website, Youtube, Soundcloud, iTunes, Amazon, Bandcamp, etc.

    I look forward to hearing your music! Who knows, it may end up in our What We’re Listening to spotlight!
