Jazz in AZ

Jazz in Arizona, Inc. (Jazz in AZ) (JIA) is a non-profit community arts organization. Our mission is to celebrate the rich tradition and ongoing innovation of jazz by presenting quality live performances, providing unique educational programs, and building an inclusive jazz community in the greater Phoenix area and beyond.

Since its inception in 1977, Jazz in AZ has been preeminently engaged in the presentation and promotion of live jazz, providing educational programs and scholarships, and serving as the primary source for all things jazz across Arizona. In April of 2012, Jazz in AZ opened The Nash, its own educational and performance center in the Roosevelt Row Arts District of Phoenix, named for native son and world-renowned drummer Lewis Nash. This center is enriching our community with a growing number of jazz concerts, weekly jam sessions and education programs while bringing together an entire community of jazz musicians, educators and listeners.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
