Jazz: The Second Century – Archives

In the summer of 2006, Earshot Jazz began a comprehensive project entitled “Jazz: The Second Century,” an initiative intended to address jazz’s progressive transition into the future. This concert series seeks to bring the discussion into creative motion where it matters most – on the stage, with an attentive audience.

Jazz: The Second Century gives voice to the vision of Seattle’s fine jazz artists. We hope you’ve enjoyed this exciting series of concerts. The music is fascinating, fun, hopeful, challenging, accessible, and beautiful. What is the future of jazz?
