YJC has been creating great live music in SW Arizona since 2002 and has produced 4 original music albums. In addition to a range of public and private events, the quintet has been performing and welcoming guest artists as the "house band" for the ongoing Village Jazz Series, Jazz Nights at Julieanna's, and the Lutes Summer Jazz Series for years. Though the art form itself can seem out of place in this fairly rural desert region, Yuma Jazz Company has developed a healthy local interest in jazz and maintained ongoing relationships with some pretty hip venues keen on presenting it to the public. Be sure to check out a live event and experience the desert’s COOL side!
