BJW Newsletter – November 23, 2020








Important Notice: Workshops canceled until further notice!

Unfortunately, because the COVID-19 pandemic is worsening across Kern County, Bakersfield Jazz Workshop board have agreed to suspend our workshops until conditions improve. We are taking this step because health and safety of our musicians, fans and general public is paramount.

While we will not be presenting any live jazz concerts for a while, this is a good time to look through your record collection and revisit some of those great records that got you hooked on jazz! We will also continue to post interesting music videos on our Facebook page (@bakojazz).

Everyone please stay safe, help keep your neighbors safe, and keep the faith until we’re back in action.



The Bakersfield Jazz Workshop is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation staffed entirely by volunteers. No one who helps run our normal, weekly workshops, including the performers, gets paid. To help us with our expenses, the purchase of equipment, to provide free clinics, pay the musicians (sometimes), and scholarships, we depend on your donations. Please make a small donation to our tip jar before you leave the workshop. (Your donation may be tax-deductible – check with your tax adviser.)

You may also make a donation online using our PayPal Donate button below. We appreciate your patronage and your support.


You can find us online at the following social networks and websites:

And, of course, the Bakersfield Jazz Workshop web page:
