JazzStand on Abrams

JazzStand on Abrams invites the best jazz artists in town to present innovative work to the public free of charge in a room devoted to listening. Formerly known as Tuesday Nite Jazz, the program now known as JazzStand on Abrams was established in 1997 in a historic sanctuary that once hosted Louis Armstrong at St. Paul United Methodist Church in the downtown Dallas Arts District. 

After twenty memorable seasons as Tuesday Nite Jazz at St. Paul, JazzStand on Abrams upholds our tradition as the longest-running free jazz concert series in Dallas in a new home, the sanctuary of Wilshire Baptist Church in the Lake Highlands section of Dallas. With a capacity of 800, Wilshire's sanctuary permits us to welcome twice as many patrons as we were able to at St. Paul. Wilshire's 4,587 pipe Schantz organ, seven foot Bechstein grand piano, and generous stage give us room to present jazz orchestras that were previously beyond our capability. Concurrent with our move to Wilshire, JazzStand has acquired a 1952 Hammond C2 organ formerly owned by Charles Nesbit of the Nesbit Jazz Trio in Philadelphia, along with the late Mr. Nesbit's two vintage Leslies.
