JazzPGH endeavors to work proactively alongside members of the music community by organizing an event that exhibits the remarkable nature of a typical week in the local jazz scene.”
JazzPGH is excited to announce the commencement of its annual Jazz Days of Summer, an in-depth look at an average week in Pittsburgh jazz. The Jazz Days of Summer campaign will shine a spotlight on the scene by promoting over 50 local events across various social media platforms from Saturday, August 17th to Sunday, August 25.

This weeklong event is being coordinated by JazzPGH, a voluntary coalition of performers, promoters, and venues devoted to jazz education and community outreach. The campaign targets potential listeners as well as seasoned veterans of the listening community. Organizers hope to also familiarize listeners with venues that consistently host live jazz. Through these relationships, musicians and entrepreneurs bring increased cultural awareness to the community and beyond.

The Jazz Days of Summer kicks off on August 16 at Con Alma, Pittsburgh’s newest jazz club located at 5884 Ellsworth Avenue. The festivities will begin with a vinyl happy hour, featuring a number of records by some of Pittsburgh’s most well-known musicians. True to its name, Con Alma will deliver soul food and live music by saxophonist Lynn Speakman and drumming legend Roger Humphries. Other notable highlights include the Monroeville Jazz festival, film screenings, and weekly jam sessions. For the most up-to-date information on the dozens of performances occurring during Jazz Days of Summer, visit JazzPGH.org, subscribe to Jazz Near You, or check out WZUM's Jazz Central calendar.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
