Expanding our individual and collective capacities to experience joy through music, the third year of Jazz at the NCMA celebrates the transcendent power of jazz as an art form, its African American origins, and its intersections with other musical genres.
This season’s lineup features seven Grammy-award winners and six Grammy-nominated artists. It centers on the improvisational spirit of traditional jazz with grooves of bebop, salsa, funk, soul, Latin jazz, R&B, fusion, neo-soul, and more. All Jazz at the NCMA concerts are held in the Joseph M. Bryan, Jr., Theater in the Museum Park.
