Amina Claudine Myers Honored with Living Legacy Award
The Living Legacy Jazz Award is important because it recognizes not only the body of work of an artist, but also transmission of skill through mentorship and education. It’s about artists who are more than their musical legacy—they are creating paths for future artists.
The Summit will be a very different experience this year
The theme of this year’s Summit, AWAKENING, invites presenters and attendees to pause, acknowledge where we are and what we continue to go through—as humans, as communities, and as an industry.
Jazz Philadelphia Summit 2021
Our 4th Annual Jazz Philadelphia Summit won’t be stopped by a resurgence of the pandemic—because the spirit of music can’t be stopped, even when stages are silent.
