About this website

It all began in May 2017. But our mission was one far different from what it is now. We were instead focused on jazz in a region between the Central Valley and the San Francisco Bay, known as the "Tri-Valley".

In early 2018, we started writing jazz reviews. A few months later, we started to write music theory posts. This continued into October 2018.

In June 2018, we changed the website's name to "Five Cities Jazz Monitor".

In October 2018, we began to make some major changes to the website. Instead of being focused on the Tri-Valley, it became a more general jazz site focused on jazz reviews and music theory posts.
