Ready To Get Help Navigating The Jazz Industry?
We can assume you’re making great music, but what else do you need to do to build a sustainable career?
1️⃣ Figure out what work needs to be done
2️⃣ Do it in the most efficient & effective way
3️⃣ Keep motivated and on track
Hitting all three of those areas alone is a bit like trying to learn to play jazz without a teacher:
It’s possible (if you listen to enough records!) but likely to take longer and get you into bad habits…
The simple goal with Jazzfuel PRO is to give musicians like you access to all the information, tools, resources and personal feedback to achieve that.
Jazzfuel PRO Is Built To Help You…

Who Hosts Jazzfuel PRO?
Hi, Matt Fripp here.
As you may know, I start out as a jazz musician, before working full-time as a booking agent and manager. Over the last 15 years I’ve booked more than 2,000 international gigs, managed PR & marketing campaigns for 250+ album releases and worked with artists from more than 30 different countries.
The Jazzfuel PRO community is the place where I spend most days, sharing tips and resources with musicians and answering questions on specific situations.
It’s not just me though. The community features a regular guest session, where I bring other agents, managers, record labels, journalists and other jazz industry people to talk and answer questions.
