New York, NY (September 26, 2022) -- Today, Jazz at Lincoln Center launches Jazz Live, a video streaming service providing exclusive access to all the institution’s live webcasts, a selection of archival performances, and all of the original world-class digital content for which Jazz at Lincoln Center is renowned.

Jazz Live is available now on Apple (iOS/tvOS), Google (Android/Android TV), Amazon Fire TV, and Roku. Subscriptions are $99.99 annually and $9.99 a month. For more information and to subscribe, visit jazzlive.com.

Since its inception, Jazz at Lincoln Center has developed a wealth of audio and video recordings, music charts, photos, and interactive material to serve its growing audience of fans, musicians, educators, advocates, students, and scholars.

The launch of Jazz Live is the organization’s newest platform for sharing its rich archive and brand-new live programming for users to experience on phones, tablets, desktops, and even TVs as an over-the-top (OTT) app. This new platform introduces Where Jazz Lives, a new original series exploring the culture of jazz in cities around the world. The first episode of Where Jazz Lives, which explores the rich Kansas City jazz scene, is available now; more episodes will be available in weeks to come.

The new Jazz Live app provides exclusive access to the following events and programs:

The mission of Jazz at Lincoln Center is to entertain, enrich, and expand a global community for jazz through performance, education, and advocacy. We believe jazz is a metaphor for Democracy. Because jazz is improvisational, it celebrates personal freedom and encourages individual expression. Because jazz is swinging, it dedicates that freedom to finding and maintaining common ground with others. Because jazz is rooted in the blues, it inspires us to face adversity with persistent optimism.
