Since the 1900s, jazz music has had a very influential impact on Cincinnati. In the 1920s, Gennett Studios attracted big-name musicians like Louis Armstrong to record, and African American jazz bands such as Zack Whyte’s Chocolate Beau Brummels originated right here in Cincinnati. Jazz became a crucial part of the Cincinnati club scene in the 1950s and has maintained popularity through time.

 

Cincinnati is the proud home to a plethora of jazz venues and concerts. Frequent these venues as much as you’d like, and be sure to add these concerts to your calendar. The information in this article is as current as of the publication date.
