Welcome to Philadelphia Jazz Project

Greetings and Welcome to Jazz Appreciation Month 2015:
April is here and that could only mean one thing, we, The Philadelphia Jazz Community is tuning up for Jazz Appreciation Month. In celebration of this special month, we are sharing a collection of voices from Philadelphia’s community of fans, supporters, performers and musicians. These folks are sharing why Philadelphia is such an important music town.
The goal of the Philadelphia Jazz Project is to inspire a network to support, promote, archive and celebrate the diverse elements within the Philadelphia jazz community, with the larger goal of connecting to the global scene. JAZZ LIVES IN PHILADELPHIA is but one vehicle we use to support and promote the Philadelphia jazz story.




Once you have viewed the videos, please give us your feedback in a sentence or two.
Email PJP at info@philajazzproject.org and let us know if you learned something new about Jazz in Philadelphia.


Please, by all means, share these videos with a friend.

So click on and tune in [below] because JAZZ LIVES IN PHILADELPHIA!


[We'd like to thank Antoine Heywood and PhillyCAM, as well as Turtle Studios for their hard work in making this happen.]

Philly Jazz Quotes

The stuff McCoy Tyner did was earth-shattering for me. The modal thing, the way he voiced chords in fourths, the way he used the pentatonic scale -- all those things were very new.
Kenny Barron
