About Loud Jazz

The key objectives of the organization are to develop more performance opportunities for Jazz musicians, and to cultivate a youth audience that can sustain the music into the future. In the short run we will be organizing events and learning from this process, sharing the good and the bad with anyone who seeks information on to how to actively promote the music. One key element of these events is to, whenever possible; use a multi-tier model that includes high school, and college students, local players, and national and international artists, not only giving work to more musicians but helping them to connect to listeners who might be surprised to find such formidable talent in their own backyard and beyond. So stay tuned, pay attention, get involved and make a big noise, the fun awaits us all.
