Ted Kurland Associates was founded by Ted Kurland in 1975, in Boston, Massachusetts. He was a recent graduate from Brandeis University with a major in Economics, and chose the talent booking field in which to launch his career. After gaining some experience for a brief time at a local Boston talent agency, he formed his own company, with an emphasis in the jazz field.

Eminent jazz vibraphonist, Gary Burton, was the first established artist to become a client of the new company. Soon thereafter, other major performers like Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea, Miles Davis and Sonny Rollins, also joined the growing family of artists with TKA.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
