ANGEL CITY JAZZ FESTIVAL
SEPTEMBER 30 to OCTOBER 14
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.
All donations to the Angel City Jazz Festival are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by the law. Angel City Arts is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization run by volunteers and has very low administrative costs. Over 80% of funds raised go towards paying musicians fees, travel and production expenses.
