Welcome to Philadelphia Jazz Project

Fall Happenings


If you missed it, Listening Party#3 3 was a great success. Taking place at the cozy Pavilion on the beautiful grounds of the The Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education in the Andorra section of the city, we had a nice crowd who enjoyed both the music and the location. The weather was just chilly enough for the roaring fire that we had going in the fireplace, courtesy of colleague, John Abner. [Special Thanks to Paula Paul and the Germantown Artist Roundtable. Pictures from the event shot by Photographer, Bruce Turner are included on this page.]
