Miami Dade College: Jazz At Wolfson Presents

”Jazz at Wolfson Presents is the only continuously running jazz series in Miami-Dade County, offering a free, year-long jazz concert series to residents, students and music lovers of all ages. The series was founded in 1998 by jazz studies professor Dr. Michael Di Liddo and inspired by MDC's Lunchtime Lively Arts concert series of the 1970s.

Running from September through April, Jazz at Wolfson Presents has featured live performances from world-renowned jazz artists such as bassist and Jazz Humanitarian Award winner Rufus Reid; saxophonist and educator Jamey Aebersold, an inductee into the International Association for Jazz Education's Jazz Hall of Fame; four-time Grammy- nominated guitarist Mike Stern; and saxophonist James Moody, a National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master. Additional artists include drummers Nate Smith, Ed Soph, Adam Nussbaum and Danny Gottlieb; violinist Sara Caswell; saxophonists Eric Alexander, Don Braden and Bobby Watson; trumpeters Ira Sullivan, Scott Wendholt, Barry Ries, Terell Stafford and Jim Rotondi; pianists Dan Haerle, Mike Gerber, Andy LaVerne and David Hazeltine; bassists Lynn Seaton and David Friesen; and vocalists Wendy Pedersen and Kate Reid. The series features a range of jazz styles, including swing, hard bop, cool, modern, Latin, fusion and avant-garde.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
