Jazz at Lincoln Center and JazzTimes have joined forces to co-produce the Jazz Congress, a new annual conference designed to bring together artists, media and industry leaders in the global jazz community to exchange ideas that will nurture and grow the jazz community and the underlying businesses and organizations that promote, produce, present, market and support the music. The 2018 Jazz Congress, featuring a series of panels, workshops, meetings and performances, will be held on January 11-12, 2018, at Frederick P. Rose Hall, home of Jazz at Lincoln Center, located at Broadway at 60th Street, New York, N.Y. The 2018 Jazz Congress schedule of events will be announced soon.

“Jazz at Lincoln Center is excited to host this much-needed community initiative. We will stimulate an inclusive environment, explore new ways to expand audiences for our music, and learn from one another,” said Wynton Marsalis, Managing and Artistic Director, Jazz at Lincoln Center. “With so much discordant non-communication around the world and in our country, now is the perfect time for us to come together for serious discourse around and about our cultural, business and aesthetic objectives. Jazz has what our modern world needs. Let us all take pride in our collective advocacy of this great music by identifying, declaring and demonstrating our common ground.”
