Angel City Jazz Festival

The Angel City Jazz Festival — Los Angeles’s most adventurous jazz festival — was founded in 2008 by music promoter Rocco Somazzi. In 2009, Cryptogramophone's founder Jeff Gauthier became a festival co-producer and the festival moved to the Ford Amphitheatre in Hollywood. Since then the festival has grown into an essential multiday celebration of cutting-edge jazz at some of the most exciting & prestigious venues in Los Angeles, such as The Ford Theatres, LACMA, REDCAT, Zebulon Café, the Blue Whale, the World Stage, the Bootleg Theatre and the Moss Theatre.

The 2018 festival is presented by Angel City Arts, a nonprofit organization committed to cultivating and revitalizing jazz culture in Los Angeles by producing concerts by established and emerging music innovators who have achieved exceptionally high levels of musicianship and brought forward a significant contribution to the evolution of jazz and improvised music.

Founded: 2008
