The future of jazz is here. Listen.

Jazz Happening Now, launched in 2015 on the Public Radio International network, is an example of how immediate radio can be. Every week we spotlight the very newest jazz music and the living artists who are writing, playing and recording it.

This is the music and these are the artists jazz listeners will still be talking about in 20 or 30 years. Young and old, these musicians are redefining and reimagining America’s great musical contribution to the world. Listeners will hear the ongoing evolution of jazz on Jazz Happening Now. We think the future of jazz is bright and even thrilling. We hope you will too.
