Why we do what we do

The Mission of Jazz Arts of the Mountainwest (“JAM”) is to foster live performance and enjoyment of America’s music. JAM is committed to music education in schools, colleges and universities, as well as education of the general public to ensure that the rich heritage of jazz and related American music is brought to a diverse population to ensure that America’s music will not be lost for current and future generations. In conjunction with professional live entertainment, JAM will foster the artistic and creative endeavors of local composers, arrangers, singers and dancers, while promoting the education of America’s major indigenous art form—Jazz.
