In its 38th year, annual Jazz in July summer music program runs July 8 through 19. The renowned jazz education, performance, and improvisation program is held each year at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Jazz in July is a summer-intensive workshop examining the technique, history, and culture of jazz. Jazz legends such as Dr. Billy Taylor, Sheila Jordan, and Max Roach helped develop Jazz in July’s strong foundation in the traditions of jazz.  

Jazz in July faculty spend two weeks working with students to hone their skills as jazz musicians. Thursday night is the faculty’s time to shine, showing their chops as prominent jazz musicians.

Thursday, July 11, 7:30 p.m. Bezanson Recital Hall, UMass featuring Bruce Diehl, Bob Ferrier, Jeff Holmes, Steve Johns, Sheila Jordan, Earl MacDonald, Stephen Page, Barry Ries, Genevieve Rose, Avery Sharpe, and Ted Sullivan. (Subject to change.)
