The SFJAZZ Center is a music venue in the Hayes Valley neighborhood of San Francisco, California, that opened in January 2013. It is considered the “first free-standing building in America built for jazz performance and education.”
SFJAZZ is a recognized international leader in jazz creation, presentation, and education. SFJAZZ explores the full spectrum of jazz—from the music’s origins in the African American community, to its diverse present-day expressions around the world. As a 501c3 non-profit organization, SFJAZZ works to develop the audience for jazz in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. SFJAZZ celebrates jazz as a living art form, built on a constantly evolving tradition.
