Discover the Soul of Jazz

All month long at the American Jazz Museum

At “The Soul of Jazz: An American Adventure,” Joe Gardner, the musician, mentor and teacher from Disney and Pixar’s “Soul,” takes visitors on a tour as they discover the rich and surprising history of jazz. The exhibit was first introduced at The American Adventure inside EPCOT – a celebration of the magic that happens when we create together – as a tribute to a musical art form that originated by African Americans and fuses influences from many different cultures. The museum is thrilled to bring this once exclusive EPCOT experience beyond Disney parks and into Kansas City, one of many cities where jazz took root and grew into the genre we know today.

The exhibit runs through April 2022. Find out more.
