Livestream premiere of four celebrated jazz artists together in concert four the first time.

The uplifting and inspiring virtual event, Returning to the Stage: An All-Star Benefit Concert, will celebrate resiliency, recovery and the return to a “new normal” from the last 15 months of challenges, supporting the JAZZ HOUSE KiDS Education Fund. Young people have been struggling with the loss of learning and motivation, as well as social isolation, and the JAZZ HOUSE is doubling down on its efforts to ensure they have the tools needed to get back on their feet, look forward toward a promising future, and imagine what’s possible.


Recorded at a private outdoor concert for the JAZZ HOUSE in October 2020, this was the first time the four celebrated jazz artists had performed together on stage, the music and synergy among the quartet was simply electric. The socially distant audience seated across the backyard’s garden and poolside could really feel how much the four jazz superstars were enjoying themselves too.
