J is for Jazz is the tenth installment in the Durham A-Z series exhibit. Showcasing both visiting and emerging talent, the exhibit underscores Durham's position in the jazz world by exploring a piece of the rich history of the Bull City jazz scene. Beginning in the 1970's, local jazz studies programs at North Carolina Central University and Duke University, coupled with an enthusiastic community, provided students with performance opportunities and experience both in and out of the classroom. The alliance between universities and the music community has created an enduring legacy of jazz in Durham.
