Welcome to our Muckenthaler Jazz Festival Family! Entering its 8th season, the Muckenthaler Jazz Concert Series has emerged from its inception to now be a recognized force in the Southern California jazz scene.. This year's series will help launch the Festival onto the International Stage when we debut the first Muckenthaler Jazz CD featuring the Glenn Cashman Nonet. Festival Co-Founder and Jazz educator Dr. Cashman, who in addition to being a world-class tenor saxophonist, is also a well known Jazz Composer/Arranger.  His first CD in the large band format has been hailed as a masterpiece and his skills have been compared to the great Duke Ellington.
