Thank you for your interest in the Jazz For Everyone Foundation. We exist to seek out and build a new generation of jazz fans while challenging the idea that jazz is “high art,” and not for the common listener. We believe jazz is music anybody can love and that it is truly a music for everyone!
We accomplish our goals through putting on live performances that focus equally on entertainment value and artistic vision. Most of our performances take place in non-traditional concert venues—parks, a beach boardwalk, or anywhere else listeners are already having having a good time— in order to effectively reach new crowds that would never otherwise go to a “jazz” club, and also to help new fans build positive associations with the music. We also place performances in schools and host regular talk-back sessions when appropriate.
To do this we need your help. Jazz was created as a music that celebrates the soul of the individual, and each one of us can make a difference. With your support, we can share the joy of jazz with a whole new generation of fans. At Jazz For Everyone, our name is our mission!
