All proceeds from this benefit concert will support OJW’s music education for youth across the Bay Area.

Formed in 1994 by the late jazz trumpeter Khalil Shaheed, Oaktown Jazz Workshops is a non-profit community-based organization dedicated to passing on the tradition of jazz music to young people through music instruction and educational presentations. Located in Jack London Square, OJW continues to promote, preserve, and present jazz music so that youth develop a sense of ownership and pride in this uniquely American cultural and artistic heritage.
