Taos jazz logoFor jazz lovers in northern New Mexico, it doesn’t get any better than this! Since 2015, the Frank Morgan Taos Jazz Festival has presented world-class jazz artists and attracted capacity crowds from far and wide. Presented by Taos Jazz Bebop Society, the festival was created to honor the late great alto saxophonist, Frank Morgan, who called Taos home. Saxophone star Grace Kelly, who became Frank’s protégé at the age of 14, has performed at the festival for all four of those years.

Taos Jazz Bebop Society is a 501c3 non-profit with a mission to keep jazz alive and thriving in Northern New Mexico. Since its founding in 2015, they have presented more than twenty five major concerts with world-famous artists like drummer Jimmy Cobb (Miles Davis band), saxophonist Charles McPherson (famous for his years with Charles Mingus), guitarist and composer Dweezil Zappa (son of Frank), sax-man Doug Lawrence (lead tenor with the Count Basie Orchestra, pianist/songwriter Bob Dorough, and the international star saxophonist/vocalist/composer Grace Kelly.

In 2018, Taos Jazz Bebop Society became an official presenter of two concerts in the New Mexico Jazz Festival.
