Launched in 2004, JZ Club has become the most representative of all the jazz clubs in Shanghai, and even in China. 365 days a year, JZ house bands present you with everything from classical Standards, buoyant Swing, to refreshing female vocals and modern Jazz Rock. On weekends, the JZ Latino and JZ All Star Big Band heat up the stage up with their passion.
Upholding the Spirit of a "Musicians' Club", JZ on weekends is the terminus for most jazz musicians in Shanghai. After a glass of wine or two, many players of note join in the jam session to turn the house into a rapturous carnival. Frequently, JZ Club presents special concerts featuring top musicians from all around the world. Numerous audiences have rediscovered the pure joy of music at JZ Club. Its name has almost become the equivalent of the jazz scene in China.
