San Francisco’s history is rich with jazz, and the history of jazz is rich with the influence of the Bay Area. From legendary venues to celebrated musicians, the Bay Area has contributed unique and swinging sounds that have inspired jazz from its inception. Discover how the Fillmore became known as “Harlem of the West” in the 1950s and 1960s and how jazz became the soul of San Francisco’s music scene. Enjoy the stylings of our most celebrated local musicians and revisit the legendary late-night jazz clubs that made this city a vibrant jazz town. Featuring performances by Turk Murphy, Bob Scobey, Dave Brubeck, Cal Tjader, Shelley Manne, Miles Davis, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman and many more.

With a vast archive of more than 12,000 films and clips, Los Angeles music maven Mark Cantor’s spectacular collection of jazz and blues performances is widely considered one of the world’s premier collections of American popular music on film.
