Austin proudly hangs it’s collective hat on being the Live Music Capital of the World® – with several music festivals to match.
One noticeable missing genre exception- jazz. AJF is designed to fill that void. Jazz is a uniquely cultural phenomenon that unites people across the divides of race, age, nationality and socio-economic status.
The 2014 Austin Jazz Festival will benefit the East Austin Music Academy, a program focused on empowerment and learning while teaching intensive music instruction for K-6 children. The EAMA operates under the auspices of the Texas Preparatory Schools. a tuition-free, public charter school, with open enrollment serving the greater Austin area.
The 2014 Austin Jazz Festival features: Kirk Whalum, Althea René, Vocalist Courtney Sanchez, Vocalist Pamela Hart, Pete Rodriguez, Trent Durham Music, Matt Butler, Jessy J.
