The Arizona Classic Jazz Society was formed in 1984 and incorporated as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization in 1989.  Its purpose is to promote and perpetuate interest in traditional jazz and support the musicians who perform the music. The Society sponsors the Arizona Classic Jazz Festival every year in November at the Crowne Plaza San Marcos Golf Resort in Chandler, AZ.

ACJS holds regular monthly jazz parties featuring live music...usually from 1—4 p.m. on the third Sunday of the month. We believe that the life and success of traditional jazz will come from today’s children and tomorrow’s adults. Toward this end, we offer college scholarships to music majors.  2007 marked the beginning of in-school jazz programs.

Members receive the newsletter and discounted fees to regular monthly jazz parties. Membership is open to any person interested in enjoying our activities and supporting the aims and objectives of ACJS. Please join us to help celebrate America’s original art form—JAZZ.

Classic Jazz defined: Most associated with New Orleans-style Jazz that had its beginnings in the late 1800's and early 1900's and then transitioned into Swing in the 1930's.  The music is very danceable.  It is also called Traditional Jazz (especially its West Coast revival in mid-century), Dixieland, Chicago-style (closer to swing), Kansas City-style, and Hot Jazz (Louis Armstrong's Hot Five and Hot Seven bands).
