What is A Place for Jazz?

A Place for Jazz isn’t really a place; it’s a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to presenting the best in Jazz. It was founded by Butch Conn in 1987. Programs include concerts, public workshops, school-based clinics, a Jazz website and general support of Jazz and its musicians.
