Seacoast Jazz Appreciation Project: Pre-concert preview performance and Q+A with Ben Allison and Ourbigband.

The Seacoast Jazz Appreciation Project (SJAP) is one of the Seacoast Jazz Society’s most successful initiatives. Launched in 2009, the series hosts leading jazz artists in free-to-the-public events that combine performance and, importantly, dialog with audience members.

SJAP’s objective to enhance the appreciation of jazz for listeners at all levels of musical sophistication, while de-mystifying this uniquely American musical genre for its newest listeners. It’s a chance to “hang” with some outstanding jazz musicians, to hear their music, and about their music, in a casual, club-like environment. Over the years, the Project has presented such jazz luminaries as Kenny Werner, Sheila Jordan, Peter Bernstein, Grace Kelly, and Gary Smulyan, among others. And the series is free to the public.
