Sacramento Jazz Education Foundation - Spreading the Joy of Jazz

Traditional jazz is contagious – its rhythms, melodic swirls and distinctive solos energize everyone who listens. It’s only natural for musicians and their fans to share great jazz with their children and grandchildren, and encourage upcoming generations to play “trad jazz” themselves. That in a nutshell is the mission of the Sacramento Jazz Education Foundation: to support young musicians as they learn to master traditional jazz. Not only will they enjoy the music themselves, one day they will pass the upbeat sounds of America’s original art form to future generations.
