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
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!
