Who We Are

A little history lesson…

The Toledo Jazz Society was founded in February 1980 to present, protect and promote Jazz — America ’s unique art form. Toledo’s musical history is so rich in Jazz that it is our musical DNA.

Our Jazz legacy is illuminated by the piano icon Art Tatum and continues with legendary Jon Hendricks and the incredible array of talent in this area.

In honor of the anniversary of ART TATUM’S 100th birthday The Toledo Jazz Society will become the Art Tatum Jazz Heritage Society.
