34th Annual Telluride Jazz Celebration...It's More Than Jazz


Sign in to view read count
Truly extraordinary moments tend to happen when high-altitude, great attitude and breathtaking mountain beauty mix with great jazz from all the genres.

August 6-8, 2010
Telluride Colorado

Telluride Jazz Celebration (TJC) has consistently earned national and international favor for featuring the best in classic, mainstream, blues, African and Latin jazz music, and this year will be no exception.

In addition to the 2010 featured artists, there will be additional TJC events like wine tastings, yoga and jazz brunches. And the exceptionally beautiful Telluride region offers a wealth of outdoor activities including golfing, jeeping, hiking, camping, kayaking, fly fishing and simply taking it all in while relaxing. Don't forget the great restaurants, shopping on historic main street, and the views from the gondola.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
