The Jazz Club of Sarasota is dedicated to preserving and promoting jazz, America’s original musical art form. Founded in 1980 by the late Hal Davis, the former publicist for Benny Goodman, the Jazz Club has approximately 650 members and is growing. The Club presents over 50 events throughout the year, including the Annual Sarasota Jazz Festival, now in its 39th year.
