Continuing the Legacy of Jazz in Milwaukee

The Milwaukee Jazz Institute was created by dedicated jazz musicians and supporters who have a passion for preserving this music and passing it on for future generations to develop. Milwaukee has had a long and vibrant jazz history, and we look to continue the legacy of Tony King, Manty Ellis, Berkeley Fudge, David Hazeltine, and others who led the way. We collaborate with other organizations that share our vision of how this music can become an even more significant factor in shaping, revitalizing, and improving our city. We hope that MJI will be instrumental in furthering jazz in Milwaukee for many generations to come.
