Jazz in Arizona Inc. (Jazz in AZ) (JIA) is a non-profit community arts organization. Our mission is to encourage the local performance and appreciation of Jazz music - America’s great original art form.

Founded in 1977, Jazz in AZ has now grown to hundreds of members, including business and professional people, musicians, educators, students, and just plain “listeners.” We share a common focus: to help Jazz thrive in Arizona and the Southwest by sponsoring live performances, by encouraging Jazz education through our scholarships, and through the camaraderie of others with these interests.
