Cambridge Jazz Festival The Cambridge Jazz Festival is a volunteer-driven nonprofit organization committed to bringing great jazz to the city of Cambridge. We also raise money for The Johnny Hodges Fund, which supports the musical aspirations of Cambridge students. The Cambridge Jazz Festival was born through the combined talents and efforts of former City Councilor Larry Ward, and Chair of the Ensemble Department at the Berklee School of Music, Ron Savage. It is their vision that the interest, energy and excitement generated by The Cambridge Jazz Festival will be the catalyst for a lasting, sustainable Culture of Jazz in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
