The San Diego Jazz Collective is a varied group of musicians who get together to share musical knowledge and ideas in a Jazz Improvisational setting. Our mutual goal is to inspire and be inspired by others and to take our musicality to the next level. Of course, our ultimate objective is to have fun at the same time!!!

Who should join? Well, we are quite a diverse group of musicians of all backgrounds and experience levels. We have members that are somewhat new to Jazz as well as Jazz professionals in this meetup group. If you want to find a place where you can practice your jazz solos and jam with other musicians and learn a thing or two about Jazz in the process, then you found the right place. Are you a more advanced player looking for a place to share your knowledge with others? Then this place is for you as well.

Music performance isn't meant for oneself, but rather the sake of others. Music is for sharing; This is our main philosophy.

If you do join, be Involved. If you have the space to Host a Jam you may schedule a Meetup Jam session on the Home Page.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
