Music puts everyone in a good mood! Upgrade your mood at these Cincinnati jazz concerts and venues.

 

Cincinnati Jazz Venues – Since the 1900s, jazz music has had a very influential impact on Cincinnati. In the 1920’s, 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.

 

Every year, Cincinnati Jazz Hall of Fame (CJHOF) honors nationally recognized musicians who are Cincinnati natives. The CJHOF preserves jazz, not only through its annual recognition celebration of inductees, but also through scholarships and programs such as master classes. For more information about their scholarships and classes, call 513-207-0476.

 

Cincinnati is the proud home to a plethora of jazz venues and concerts, of which we have listed below. Frequent these venues as much as you’d like, and be sure to add these concerts to your calendar.
