Based in Oakland, California and founded in 1994, OJW celebrates jazz music as an American indigenous art form of profound and artistic significance. A complex and enjoyable music as well as an important indicator of American history, jazz offers a rich legacy that has touched the lives of each generation and continues to be a critical component of contemporary culture.
