Bringing Jazz to the Community

Since 1967, a dedicated group if Jazz enthusiasts have worked hard to make Jazz an important part of the history of the Permian Basin. As a result of their efforts, the West Texas Jazz Society’s Jazz Party Collaboration is now the oldest continuously running Jazz Party in the United States! And a new leadership team is making plans to make sure that we don’t lose that honor.


But that’s just part of the WTJS story. Educating the youth of West Texas to Jazz as America’s original music art form is equally important.


Lets Jazz It Up!

From small, intimate performances that feature some of our Jazz Party’s most popular artists to school performances and workshops for both ECISD and MISD students, stay “in the know” when it comes to WTJS special events!”
