Traditional jazz is alive and well in Seattle and the Northwest.
Classic jazz, Dixieland, ragtime, Chicago and New Orleans jazz,
West Coast revival, San Francisco style, Nicksieland or whatever
you call it, that’s what this is all about.
The Puget Sound Traditional Jazz Society, with several hundred
members, has not lost sight of its original purpose – the pleasure
of jazz performance. Every month many of our members and guests
gather to enjoy a concert of traditional jazz music played by
local bands and internationally known stars. Occasionally,
featured soloists entertain us with ragtime creations.
The non-profit, tax exempt Puget Sound Traditional Jazz Society
began in 1975 with informal meetings of a group of enthusiasts who
hungered for an opportunity to hear music with its roots in New
Orleans style tunes and instrumentations. The first concerts were
successes and so the form has been endorsed and expanded. The
concerts, occurring on a Sunday afternoon, are informal and
enjoyable. Your membership pays most of your admission and also
provides JAZZ SOUNDINGS – our monthly magazine. Meetings consist
of three hours of music and dancing. Families are welcomed and
children are permitted.
The purpose is sharing – if you play or listen to traditional jazz
and just can’t keep your foot from twitching – welcome. Send in
the application. Please join us!
