San Jose Jazz continues its rich tradition of presenting some of today's most distinguished artists and hottest jazz upstarts at the 22nd San Jose Jazz Summer Fest from Friday, August 12 through Sunday, August 14, 2011 at Plaza de Cesar Chavez Park in downtown San Jose, CA.

A premier summer destination for music lovers, concert-goers and families alike, the 22nd San Jose Jazz Summer Fest hosts 10 stages of live music with more than 100,000 festival attendees expected throughout the weekend. Bringing together the arts community, nightlife venues, restaurants and countless local businesses for the biggest Latin music festival on the West Coast, San Jose Jazz ignites the downtown San Jose scene with its most exciting line-up of artists to date.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
