Jazzmania is the Nashville Jazz Workshop’s Annual Jazz Party and Fundraiser. All proceeds benefit the Nashville Jazz Workshop, and go to support the Workshop’s mission of enriching people’s lives through classes, performances, and special events for the community.

Mark your calendars for Jazzmania, Saturday October 19, 2019!

Jazzmania is the Jazz Party of the Year, with great live jazz from some of the city’s finest musicians.

This year’s artist lineup is sensational!

Headlining the bill is the Gerald Clayton Quartet. The son of legendary bassist John Clayton, Gerald Clayton has already carved a niche for himself at the top ranks of jazz piano. A Grammy-nominated instrumentalist and composer, Clayton has recorded and toured with his own groups and with such jazz greats as Charles Lloyd, Terrell Stafford, Diana Krall, the Clayton Brothers, and many more. Clayton’s previous visit to Nashville in 2018 was a stunning solo piano concert at Belmont University.

Also performing will be the Lori Mechem Quartet and the NJW Young Artist Ensemble.

TICKETS ARE NOW ON SALE. Tables for eight, VIP Patron Tickets, and sponsorship opportunities are also available.

There will be a special Patron Reception for table hosts, sponsors, and patron ticket-holders ¬†at 5pm Saturday, October 19. Hors d’oeuvres, drinks, and a meet-and-greet with the Gerald Clayton Quartet.

Jazzmania also includes a live and silent auction, with unique and desirable items.

The Silent Auction features the Small Works art collection along with many dining and entertainment packages and unique experiences.

The Small Works collection is here, and will be ready for viewing and bidding online soon! We’ve received over 60 beautiful works from artists from the Nashville area and from around the country. We can hardly wait to show this to you!!

The Live Auction features fabulous items and packages, including vacation packages, special dinner and concert experiences, and beautiful original artwork. Stay tuned for details!

Another special element of Jazzmania is the the NJW Heritage Award, presented annually to a person who has made major contributions to the jazz community over an extended time. Congratulations to last year’s winner, Jeff Coffin!

Please join us on October 19 for great music, food, and more!
