Our Mission Statement

Jazz Central Studios is 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.


Total Musicians

In 2015 alone, over 370 individual musicians have participated just in almost every configuration and style.


Weekly Events

On average, JCS creates 5-6 weekly performing opportunities for local musicians through regular and special events.


Live Tracks

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 2016. These regularly organized events are growing in number and size for 2017!
