I thought I’d list some Web Sites I know of (and use), that you can access to learn about what Jazz performances (and other music & events) are happening in the metro area. No cost to enter, or passwords (unless you want to post something yourself, like me and my series); just find their calendar and discover…
Some might offer a tag or description filter to find something more specific you have in mind i.e. music style, instrument, venue, town, musician, etc.
Do you want to have a comprehensive view on what’s happening with Jazz in Metro Boston?
Just GOOGLE: Jazz Boston, ArtsBoston, Boston Jazz Scene, Boston Calendar, Boston.com, and any of these names:

Some Radio stations with Jazz programming (some or a lot of the time) that you can stream in or listen to on the radio when you can’t or don’t feel like going out. I know, there’s XM Radio and dozens of independent web sites both good and bad, to navigate to, but how about a little Old-School…
Google WMBR-FM WGBH-FM WICN-FM WHRB-FM
I invite you to consider my Jazz series in Cambridge, examples of “Jazz beyond Jazz” (not Fusion nor R&B, nor Commercial), but Urban Jazz Improvisations, all at the Lilypad; the next two 10/19 and 10/29. Go beyond and hear the new, provocative, “serious fun”.
Support live Jazz, the essence of the music beyond CD’s, streaming, downloads, podcasts and even radio, because it’s played for you right there and then, in person, nothing fake! Enjoy!
