The Memphis Jazz community needs a revival.

Jazz represents one of the most important musical, historical, and cultural phenomena of the Memphis and Mid-South area. A true renaissance of Jazz culture can only come about from the youth in this city — aided by those of us who know and have lived the musical richness of this American art form. Memphis Jazz Workshop is in position to keep moving the legacy forward, creating the next generation of jazz enthusiasts and highly trained musicians.
