ABOUT

The brave new Angel City Jazz Festival is our burg's most prestigiously progressive muscic event - LA WEEKLY

The city's can't miss destination for eclectic, cutting edge jazz - LA Times


Jazz never stands still. 

It’s constantly evolving and reinventing itself.  

While nurturing a deep respect for the history of jazz, Angel City focuses on its future by encouraging and embracing  persistent innovation and experimentation


The Angel City Jazz Festival - LA’s most adventurous jazz festival -  was founded in 2008 by music promoter Rocco Somazzi.  In 2009, Cryptogramophone's founder Jeff Gauthier became a festival coproducer and the festival moved to the Ford Amphitheatre in Hollywood. Since then the festival has grown into an essential multi day celebration of cutting edge Jazz at some of the most exciting & prestigious venues in  LA,  such as The Ford Theatres, LACMA, REDCAT, Zebulon Café, the Blue Whale, the World Stage, the Bootleg Theatre and the Moss Theatre.

The 2018 festival is presented by ANGEL CITY ARTS, a non-profit organization committed to cultivating and revitalizing jazz culture in Los Angeles by producing concerts by established and emerging music innovators who have achieved exceptionally high levels of musicianship and brought forward a significant contribution to the evolution of jazz and improvised music. 

The Angel City Jazz Festival consistently features the most innovative and original national and international jazz musicians working today, balancing established jazz artists with emerging talent, and focusing on west coast creative jazz, past, present and future.
