The renowned San Diego Jazz Party carries on a rich tradition of presenting classic, mainstream jazz to the public on an annual basis. The weekend-long party features performances by exceptional musicians from across the country and around the world in a relaxed, intimate setting.
The Hilton San Diego/Del Mar location provides an acoustically pleasing, comfortable setting for three days of jazz that should not be missed. The hotel is located just a mile from the beautiful beaches of Del Mar, California.
The party was originally presented in Downtown San Diego by Bill and Beverly Muchnic. Herb Kratze next moved the party to the current Hilton San Diego/Del Mar location. Others have presided over the event, including Dave and Joanne Cooper, John Amberg, Poo Wyer, Dave Nuffer, Philip Moody and Dan Reid.
Due to the untimely passing of Dan Reid on August 30, 2020, the event is now managed by President Sandi Joyce. To read more about Dan Reid, please click here
