TEACHING AND Performing Jazz

We tell the story of Black Jazz in Pittsburgh.


AAJPSP reflects the incredibly rich history of African-American jazz musicians who hailed from the Pittsburgh area.

We honor our elders and pursue their dreams.


AAJPSP supports the surviving members of the former Black Musicians Union, Local 471, providing opportunities for them to perform, educate and fellowship.
