Due to the ongoing pandemic, the 2020 B’Town Jazz Fest had to be cancelled. However, B’Town Jazz bravely took up the challenge of producing a series of virtual performances featuring some of the wonderful talent our area has to offer!

Watch the video series on YouTube or here at

Many thanks to our wonderful sponsors and performers, and to Chris Parker, who produced and edited all the videos, John Porter who did all the introductions, Chris and Jeff Parker, who did social media posts, and Lisa Ensman, who sent out emails and posted videos to the website every month for the last year.

B’Town Jazz makes a statement of support for racial equity and diversity and announces the commissioning of two compositions

B’Town Jazz is committed to using its resources to support the fight for racial equity and celebrate diversity through the performing arts.  Jazz music has deep roots in Black culture and has played a central role in civil rights movements that demand equality and justice.

As a visible sign of support, B’Town Jazz is proud to announce that it has commissioned Wayne Wallace and Greg Ward to each compose a new work for jazz ensemble that reflects on the racial crisis in our nation and underscores the significance of the Black Lives Matter movement
