Philadelphia Clef Club Of Jazz

Philadelphia Clef Club of Jazz & Performing Arts is ranked highly as a must visit venue that offers America’s original art form jazz on a regular basis. Founded in 1966 by James Adams and members of an African American musicians union Local #274, membership included Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Sarah Vaughn, Sonny Stitt, Art Blakey, Dinah Washington, Max Roach, Clifford Brown, Shirley Scott, “Philly” Joe Jones, Tootie Heath, Jimmy Heath, John Coltrane, Dizzy Gillespie, Grover Washington, Jr., and Nina Simone among others were in attendance.

The Music Education Programs began in 1985 as the Clef Club members began to recognize a decline in new and available Philadelphia jazz talent. Member-driven outreach initially included local musicians who volunteered their time and energy to teach jazz to local youth who were interested. By 1988 the Clef Club received a seed grant that helped to establish the initial Jazz Education efforts.
