Los Angeles Jazz Clubs


Jazz playerLos Angeles has always meant jazz, from the hotspots of Central Avenue, where Eric Dolphy, Art Pepper, Chico Hamilton, Charles Mingus and other famous jazz musicians blew the fronds off the palm trees with their scorching bop, to the cool, lyrical rhythms of West Coast Jazz players like Chet Baker and Gerry Mulligan. The contemporary scene draws from a new generation of players and innovative Los Angeles jazz bands. You don't need to "Take the A Train" to reach our Los Angeles jazz clubs; we've got the Gold Line.
