In response to the increasing inaccessibility of jazz performances in Harlem, Dr. Billy Taylor founded Jazzmobile in 1964, a not-for-profit arts organization that presents free, professional, live jazz concerts in order to bring jazz “back to Harlem.” Jazzmobile has presented free, live jazz concerts continuously for over fifty years, through which audiences, production teams, organizers and musicians sound and listen to amplified jazz at historical sites in Harlem’s outdoors.

Jazzmobile, Community, and the Harlem Soundscape engages how Jazzmobile constructs community and the soundscape of Harlem in the midst of Harlem’s changing milieu. The program features performances by Jazzmobile all stars, a keynote address interrogating Jazzmobile as cultural repatriation and a roundtable discussion with Jazzmobile audience members.
