Continuing the Storied Legacy of Jazz in Milwaukee

Milwaukee’s long and vibrant jazz history is legendary. Tony King, Manty Ellis, Berkeley Fudge, Buddy Montgomery, Gerald Cannon, David Hazeltine, and others have led the way. Now, it’s our turn.

The Milwaukee Jazz Institute was created by dedicated jazz musicians and supporters passionate about preserving this music and passing it on for future generations to develop.

By collaborating with other organizations that share our vision, we believe this music can become an even more significant factor in shaping, revitalizing, and uniting our city. We look forward to being a catalyst for the furthering of jazz in Milwaukee for many generations to come.
