Founded in 1969 by a small group of jazz fans, writers, and musicians, the Jazz Institute of Chicago was initially established as a way of preserving the historical roots of Chicago’s music in the rock and popular music economy of the late 1960s and early 1970s. Founding members included Art Hodes, Muhal Richard Abrams, Harriet Choice, Joe Segal, Bob Koester, Don DeMicheal, and Penny Tyler.
The Jazz Institute of Chicago represents all forms of music and is involved in various festivals and concerts, including the Chicago Jazz Festival, the Annual Jazz Fair, and JazzCity, a concert series that works jointly with the Chicago Park District. With its many endeavors, the Jazz Institute of Chicago is committed to supporting the great legacy of jazz in Chicago.
