2017 marked the fortieth year of the Atlanta Jazz Festival. We are proud to have partnered with the City of Atlanta, Office of Cultural Affairs to make a commemorative book documenting the life of the festival since its inception.
The Atlanta Jazz Festival is regarded as one of the country’s largest free jazz festivals. It is an annual musical showcase that celebrates jazz legends and up-and-coming jazz greats in venues throughout metropolitan Atlanta during the entire month of May. The festival culminates each Memorial Day weekend with show-stopping performances at Piedmont Park.
