60 years ago, on August 12, 1958, the famous “A Great Day in Harlem” photo was taken by Art Kane, a freelance photographer working for Esquire magazine. This August 12, 2018, on the 60th Anniversary, you are invited to participate in our own “A Great Day in Columbia”.
Calling all jazz musicians of the Columbia, SC and Columbia-area jazz scene, great and small, to come be in this historical photo celebrating our Columbia Jazz Scene! If you have played jazz in Columbia as a bandleader, sideman, a jazz educator, or in some way an active part in our growing, living jazz scene, you should be there.

Jazz brings people together. Jazz uplifts the individual while supporting the collective. Jazz builds community. Jazz challenges you to become a better musician, a better human being, a better communicator and a better listener. Jazz encourages a mindset of constant growth, empathy, encouragement, openness, creativity and so, so, so much more. – Mark Rapp
