The Montpelier Arts Center is located between Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD. Located on the grounds of an 18th century Georgian Mansion, the arts center provides quality arts experiences for the entire Baltimore/Washington metropolitan area. The arts center hosts performances by such jazz luminaries as McCoy Tyner, Marcus Roberts, Ethel Ennis, Bobby Hutcherson, and Keter Betts.

In 1999, the arts center formed JazzMont to present CD's of these live performances. After Marcus Roberts performed two shows at the center, he claimed that he played the best he had ever played up to that point. It was such a shame that no one else would be able to experience that show. Since then, the arts center has released five CD's to rave reviews.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
