When the gig ends, a jazz musician's day is just beginning. As the nightclub patrons pay their bar tabs and head home to bed, musicians begin to congregate at after-hours jam sessions, where they play with and for their peers. At these informal gatherings, which few non-musicians are privileged to attend, groups of artists who don't normally play together create new sounds and try out new ideas, and the music is always spontaneous and fresh. Performing for an audience of fellow musicians forces the players to stay creative and play their best.

Each year, Stanford Jazz Workshop assembles an all-star faculty of outstanding musicians at every stage in their careers. Always a highlight of the Stanford Jazz Festival, our annual Faculty All-Star Jam brings the spontaneity of a late-night jam session to the stage and provides a once-in-a lifetime opportunity to see some of the music's most revered masters share the stage with up-and-coming young stars in an informal, unpredictable setting. And you don't even need to stay up all night to hear it!
