From The Desk of Jaijai Jackson

Dear Friends,

The time has come where The Jazz Network Worldwide is expanding to new heights.  In the past 11 1/2 years, it has thrived and grown and became a mainstay in the jazz community.  I found that after that amount of time that the software that I originally created the network on became antiquated and I didn't care for the new upgrade for our platform.  In that knowing, the Not Just Jazz Network has taken its step forward through the doors of The Jazz Network Worldwide's effort to keep the ever-morphing jazz world in the forefront of the music world.  As for many of you that know me, I felt it only necessary to create a platform where not only traditional jazz is respected and honored, (for it is my heritage,) I wanted to acknowledge other genres that include jazz in their artistry.  For this, is what we could be seeing a lot of on the jazz festival stages today.  I felt it imperative to start featuring those artists as well as our traditionalists to the marketplace so there are more opportunities to be heard and booked.  The Not Just Jazz Network is a movement, whereas we will be featuring artists and businesses that serve the community, this will be done on a weekly and/or monthly basis.  I want to make sure that I can accommodate artists in the different categories and make it more affordable for my clients. 

I am still looking for another platform that will allow for the social network community to come back into form but it has to be "just right". In the meantime, the Not Just Jazz Network will continue in the efforts to promote artistry from all over the world. Please be sure to add your email on the homepage so I can make sure you are included in the newsletters that I send out on new artists and all that jazz.  Please follow us to keep the momentum strong.

I am humbled by all the love and support throughout the years as we continue to grow not only as The Jazz Network Worldwide family but to our sister network and its featured artistry in the Not Just Jazz Network and its movement.

If you are interested in the promotion and/or being featured, please contact to discuss, please peruse the list of NJJ services in the navigation area. 

Much love and respect as we embark in just another way to be heard and to grow together with how jazz is being considered in the marketplace. I look forward to hearing from you all.
