Thanks to everyone who made the 15th Annual Austin Traditional Jazz Society Jam Session a success.  The Jam drew 215 people, of whom 33 performed.  On February 12, the Society returns to its concert schedule with a performance by Tommy Griffith and the New Orleans Jazz Band of Austin

In addition to the ATJS concert, we can point you in the direction of many fine jazz ensembles in Central Texas.  Please enjoy the music and help keep this great art form alive.
