Since its inception in the late 1988, the San Diego Jazz Party has been entertained by some of the world's greatest and most talented mainstream jazz musicians. The legacy of the past has set the standard for the future: world-class musicians will continue to perform at the annual party in San Diego. We pay tribute to all of the musicians who have performed at our parties since the beginning. If readers of our web site have a record of performers at earlier parties, we would appreciate hearing from you.
