The next generation of jazz programming. 

Hosted by multiple Grammy Award-winning musician Christian McBride, Jazz Night in America presents on multiple platforms and from across the nation to share this uniquely American art form.

The program features storytelling with concert performances, connecting jazz enthusiasts and potential new fans with artists and venues -- and each other -- through weekly, broadcasts and live signature videocasts and on-demand video of jazz events from today's great artists and venues.

It brings jazz fans together online via chat rooms during concerts and through social media, encouraging a deeper conversation with musicians, representatives of arts organizations and the major institutions of the jazz world, and arts educators in their community.
