A terrific organization. The services they perform in the area range from presenting world-class jazz concerts (including performances i've attended with the likes of Wallace Roney, Les Paul's Trio, the Sinatra Birthday Bash, and many many others) to their education program, the Jazz Arts Academy. I've seen many of these first hand, and everything i've witnessed has been professionally produced and has left me consistently impressed with the organization's quality and commitment to the art of jazz.
