American Jazz Venues is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization formed by Jazz artists, educators, and Jazz enthusiasts from diverse professions and backgrounds. Organized in 2001, our singular focus is on the health and survival of America’s indigenous musical art form, Jazz.
To CREATE more Jazz venues.
To DEVELOP a new and younger audience for Jazz.
American Jazz Venues is dedicated to the preservation and growth of America's cultural gift to the world, Jazz.
As America's indigenous musical art form, Jazz is of historic value. It is alive with improvisation, rhythms, harmonies that are absent from much of the current broadcast, concert and club scenes.
