What is JazzClectic?

Jazz88 is bringing top Minnesota jazz musicians out of the cloistered clubs and rarefied concert halls, into wide-open, public spaces.  Experience creative and virtuosic jazz musicians in unexpected places, through the Jazzclectic pop-up concert series. Musicians meet a broad swath of Minnesotans, in locales from mega-malls to stadium plazas to neighborhood parks. Discover the state of our sound, and the sound of our state. All ages, all free, all good.
