About Jazz Congress:
Jazz Congress brings together members of the global jazz community to network and grow the audience for the music. The annual gathering also seeks to nurture businesses and organizations that promote, produce, present, market, and support jazz.
The second annual Jazz Congress, co-produced by Jazz at Lincoln Center and JazzTimes, was held in January 2019 and drew more than 1,068 attendees from around the world. More than 198 performers, panelists, and speakers participated in performances, workshops, and 45 panel discussions.
