"Jazz Lives Philadelphia is a vital new organization programming concerts that reposition the spotlight on jazz in Philadelphia. It serves to showcase the legacy of this definitively American art form in an historically jazz-rich city by  presenting it with integrity to a broader audience and aggressively introducing it to young people. Philadelphia, the birthplace of Benny Golson and Lee Morgan, will benefit greatly from the work of these young and dedicated patriots."
-Wynton Marsalis
