Promoting America's Music for Future Generations

Founded in 1992 and based in Salt Lake City, Utah, Jazz Arts of the Mountainwest (JAM) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting the enjoyment of Jazz. At JAM, we believe that Jazz is America’s music, indigenous to this great country yet comprised of the diversity and global influence that makes it the world’s greatest musical art form.

For over 25 years, JAM has remained committed to furthering music education in schools, colleges and universities and to the education of the general public, ensuring that the rich heritage of jazz and related music will not be lost for current and future generations. We believe this mission is even more important today. Through the generous funding of our supporters, partners and valued sponsors, we continue to expand the number of events and live performances throughout Utah.

 

Please join us in helping to ensure jazz remains a central part of our society, culture and communities for years to come. Whether it’s the annual Salt Lake City Jazz Festival, the JAM Clinics, our festival roadshows or other events throughout the year, it’s a great honor to serve and promote jazz in Salt Lake City and Utah. Feel free to contact us any time and thank you for your support!
