Art of Jazz

The Art of Jazz series has been bringing the world’s best jazz artists to Buffalo for more than 15 years, with a series of four concerts annually.

The Albright-Knox will host one more Art of Jazz concert this fall: The Bill Charlap Trio on Saturday, October 26, 2019, at 8 pm. 

While the museum is closed for construction, the series will find a temporary new home in the Mary Seaton Room at Kleinhans Music Hall in 2020. Learn More about Art of Jazz at the Philharmonic in 2020
