Jazz greats coast-to-coast and legends from Argentina to Yemen are showcased at America's newest, largest jazz center. Hear fresh takes on classic jazz albums like Ah Um and Getz/Gilberto downstairs in the Lab, or book ahead for extraordinary main-stage collaborations like Laurie Anderson with David Coulter playing the saw, or pianist Jason Moran's performance with skateboarders improvising moves on indoor ramps.

Jazz-themed cocktails are served on the balcony, and you can take them into the LEED-certified glass-and-concrete auditorium – even upper-tier cheap seats have drink holders and clear stage views. Upstairs, test your knowledge of jazz history with Sandow Birk's tile murals capturing the scene from coast to coast. Check the website for family matinees and master classes on subjects ranging from Afro-Peruvian rhythms to studio audio mixing.
