San Diego Jazz Party

Thanks to our many devout Patrons, Contributors, Supporters, and our talented professional musicians, our 2014 Jazz Party was truly exceptional. It's hard to improve on perfection, but we'll try again next year.

February 20-22, 2015
At the Hilton San Diego/Del Mar
in Del Mar, California

View and listen to live sessions from our parties here.

As always, our Jazz Party will feature weekend-long performances by world-class, mainstream jazz musicians, all of whom are popular and renowned recording artists.

We have an annual tradition of honoring one of our musicians as an SDJP "Jazz Legend" for his or her outstanding contribution to America's jazz heritage. In 2010, we honored the venerable drummer, the late Jake Hanna, who died a week before our festival. Past honorees have included:

  • Ed Polcer
  • the late Barney Kessel
  • trumpet legend Joe Wilder
  • pianist/composer Dick Hyman
  • Jeannie Cheatham and
    the late Jimmy Cheatham
  • Bucky Pizzarelli.
  • Houston Person.
  • Johnny Varro
  • Mundell Lowe

In 2015, we will be pleased to honor one of the world's most talented drummers - Butch Miles

Our three-day festival will be held again in the ballroom of the Hilton San Diego/Del Mar - a great location for a weekend of good food, relaxation, libations, and outstanding classic jazz. Those who purchase Patron badges for the three-day weekend will be Jazz Party guests on Friday afternoon for a Cocktail Party and for brunch on Saturday morning. Music will be provided at both events.

Please visit our "Musicians" link for a list of the talented professionals who will perform at our Party in February 2015.
