The Jazz Website is all about nurturing the next generation of jazz.

Part of the process of nurturing the next generation of jazz is providing exposure for musicians.

Another part of the process is providing a place to have a voice -- to makes one's self heard.

An additional aspect of this process is providing easy access to resources, tools, and exposure to the deep heritage of jazz -- the roots of jazz.

We are pleased to present articles submitted by our many readers in addition to a wide spectrum of celebrity feature writers. Depth of content and perspective is important to capture the flavor of the evolving form of jazz.

The International Assocation for Jazz Education is host to many thousands of musicians, students, educators and jazz lovers January 11 through 14, 2006, at the Hilton in New York City.
