• Jason Ajemian & the HighLife

There’s little question that jazz musicians aren’t leading the charge when it comes to using technology to promote their music or build their “brand.” Jason Ajemian & the HighLife don’t play jazz qua jazz, but the music is a big enough part of the quintet’s makeup that I’m impressed to see that they’ve made a series of short promotional videos (billed as a “video tour blog”) on their current U.S. tour. They played a handful of shows in Chicago last week, and they’ll wind things up here on April 26 at the Skylark.
