The Greater Madison Jazz Consortium (GMJC) is proud to announce the launch of our new website, www.jazzinmadison.org. A “go to” website for Greater Madison’s jazz community was one of the highest-rated initiatives to emerge from the Consortium’s series of jazz musician “town hall” meetings convened last winter by GMJC staff member Nick Moran. Now, thanks to the fine work of local bassist and web designer John Christensen, the new site is now up and running. While we’ll be adding more features as we go along, the site now has a robust daily calendar of upcoming jazz shows by local and touring artists, a “book a band” service for your parties or other special events, feature stories on different aspects of our local jazz scene, and more.
We’re currently featuring a great piece on Afro-Cuban music by esteemed local cultural writer Susan Kepecs, and a review by local trombonist Kevan Feyzi of Madison-based trumpeter Paul Dietrich’s new CD. Click here to view Susan’s story, and click here to view Kevan’s review.

With the launch of jazzinmadison.org, the Jazz Consortium says ‘goodbye” to this WordPress site that has served us well during our start-up period. Onward!
