Russian Jazz World is a non-government public initiative with a goal to represent on the international level the jazz scene in Russia, and the Russian jazz artists who reside in Russia or in other countries, as a living and lively community of jazz schools, clubs, festivals, promoters, researchers, broadcasters, journalists and, most significantly, hundreds of jazz musicians.
