Directory of Jazz Societies


The first Directory of Jazz Societies was originally compiled by former NMAH intern, Roshni Lal, after a survey was sent to several hundred jazz societies in 2001.  In 2010, the national directory was updated by summer intern, Reid Lawrence (The College of William & Mary 2012).  Use this guide to connect with your local jazz societies during JAM and throughout the year.*
