Jazz Institute Showcase

Catch SJW’s rising stars.

Event Description

Enjoy a mini-festival of jazz, performed by rising stars from all over the world, at a great price: free! In four convenient venues, you can see dozens of jazz combos and vocalists playing everything from cool jazz to bebop, and from standards to original songs. The musicians are professionals or rising stars, the bands you’ll hear at this free community event will amaze and delight you. All are participants in Stanford Jazz Workshop’s Jazz Institute, a week-long jazz immersion experience designed to bring some of the greatest jazz talents together with rising stars and developing artists. At the Jazz Institute, participants rehearse with their bands each day under the guidance of a seasoned jazz veteran, honing their improvisatory skills and their ensemble sound. Many of the world’s great jazz musicians got their start in this program, including Taylor Eigsti, Julian Lage, Joshua Redman, Larry Grenadier, Ambrose Akinmusire, and many others. Come out and discover the next generation of jazz greats!
