About Jazz with Jim

It's more than a jazz concert. It's time with friends.

Jazz with Jim is a monthly concert hosted by Jim Burge (saxophone/flute), Ron Delp (keyboard), Jeff Hanson (drums), and Mike Ruven (bass)  — together, they are The Jazz Directions. Performing to a faithful audience since 2008, The Jazz Directions enjoy celebrating the music of famous composers, jazz legends, and welcoming coming guest vocalists and musicians along the way. 

PLEASE NOTE: The streaming event on Friday, April 29 is a special Jazz with Jim that is part of the Jim Burge Jazz Festival. 

Welcome to the Carrollwood Cultural Center

It’s where a 5-year-old girl discovers that she’s an artist, a 70-year-old man discovers he’s a musician, a 35-year-old woman learns ballet and a family grows stronger by sharing the stage together.

It’s the banquet hall where Anna married Luis. It’s the meeting room where Jennifer launched her career. It’s the stage where Oliver found a family and a Music Man traded swindling for love.

The Carrollwood Cultural Center is much more than a building. It’s the place where strangers become friends and friends become family.

Above all, it’s a place where a community came together to prove—and continue to prove–that ordinary citizens can, through their labors and generosity, determine the culture of the place in which they live ou their lives.
