    About JumpforJazz

This is how I came up with the idea for ‘JumpforJazz’, a production company that not only aims to bring Jazz to as big and diverse an audience as possible, through a wide variety of concerts, but more over strives to inspire and support young Vietnamese music students with a love for and a desire to play Jazz, by giving them a platform to play, learn and grow. I sincerely hope Viet Nam will soon be filled with many inspired and inspiring Jazz musicians.’ _Nguyen Bao Long, JumpforJazz, Music Director & Band Leader.
