On January 13th, 2022, Emmet Cohen will headline our very first Club 100 Celebration.  This event will include a 3-course catered dinner, drinks and hand-crafted cocktails, in an all immersive atmosphere at a yet-to-be-disclosed location.  We know this will be a most memorable evening full of great food, and music.


Multifaceted American jazz pianist and composer Emmet Cohen is one of his generation’s pivotal figures in music and the related arts. Downbeat praised the “nimble touch, measured stride and warm harmonic vocabulary” he employs to communicate with other musicians and audiences at what he terms “the deepest level of humanity and individuality.” Leader of the “Emmet Cohen Trio” and creator of the “Masters Legacy Series,” Cohen is an internationally acclaimed jazz artist and dedicated music educator.

Emmet Cohen is the winner of the 2019 American Pianists Awards and the Cole Porter Fellow of the American Pianists Association, and Artist-in-Residence at the University of Indianapolis. He was a finalist in the 2011 Thelonious Monk International Piano Competition. Cohen has appeared at major international jazz festivals and at Lincoln Center’s Rose Hall and Washington’s Kennedy Center, in addition to headlining at the Village Vanguard and other major New York jazz clubs. For many years he was Hammond B-3 Organist-in-Residence at Harlem’s SMOKE jazz club. During the lockdown he created “Live From Emmet’s Place,” a weekly livestream that received millions of internet views worldwide. Cohen is a Mack Avenue artist.

A Suzuki piano student at age three, Cohen holds jazz piano degrees from the Manhattan School of Music (M.M.) and the University of Miami (B.M.). Emmet Cohen has performed, recorded, or collaborated with Ron Carter, Benny Golson, Jimmy Cobb, George Coleman, Jimmy Heath, Tootie Heath, Houston Person, Christian McBride, Kurt Elling, Billy Hart, Herlin Riley, Lea DeLaria, and Bill T. Jones. 


Jazz music creates an environment that blends backgrounds, ethnicities and cultures. It is within this collective community that we blossom as individuals and as a community. Sponsoring the arts is an effective way for you to demonstrate your commitment to our community and to your family, friends, employees, and beyond.

We limit the membership of this club to 100 members and are looking for community leaders who will stand behind the arts, seeing the greater picture of what that support can do. Remember, when you partner with TJF, you partner with the entire city of Tucson!
