Jazz Concert Tickets
Jazz originated in the beginning of the 20th century in African-American communities. Depending upon the performer's mood and personal experience, they will interpret a tune in very individual ways and never play it the same way twice. After the abolition of slavery, many African-Americans were able to find jobs in the entertainment industry. Black musicians were able to provide "low-class" entertainment in dances, minstrel shows and vaudeville.
The jazz community shrank and fell apart in the 1980s. Jazz continues to appeal to a core group of listeners. Jazz has split into different genres including smooth jazz, acid jazz, punk jazz and M-Base. Some of the more well-known jazz musicians today include B.B. King, Norah Jones, Chris Botti and Joe Bonamassa, to name a few. If you are looking to attend a wonderful jazz performance, please browse our selection of tickets to see some great jazz artists.
