Our Mission Statement
Jazz Central Studios is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the innovative jazz arts in the Twin Cities. We present live music to the community in a non-commercial listening environment and encourage collaboration and education among musicians of wide and varied experience.
In 2015 alone, over 370 individual musicians have participated just in almost every configuration and style.
On average, JCS creates 40-50 weekly performing opportunities for local musicians through regular and special events.
Since early on, JCS has digitally recorded and archived almost every live performance for musicians to use as tools to review and improve.
The focus on music education resulted in 20+ masterclasses, clinics, & interactive youth programs in 2015. These regularly organized events are growing in number and size for 2016!
