Jazz in the Gardens: 'A Feast for the Senses', is endorsed by Power 106/Music 99 and Kool 97 FM and is co-sponsored by Clear Sound Productions and The Jamaica Pegasus, which is widely regarded as the home of jazz in the capital city.

In 2000, the management of The Jamaica Pegasus created a peerless venue for patrons to enjoy the talents of highly respected local and international acts in the jazz idiom. This trailblazing innovation, known as Jazz in the Gardens, has proven to be a winner, consistently offering 'A Feast for the Senses' by combining cool music, food, and beverages and the alluring ambiance of a garden-like setting for the total jazz experience.

For 14 years, Jazz in the Gardens has featured world-class performers from the United States, Canada, St Lucia, Trinidad, Guyana, South Africa, and Jamaica, among them, Barbara Walker, Rosemary Phillips, Courtney Fadlin, Lorraine Klassen, Shenita Hunt, Daren Shepherd, Ernie Ranglin, Dr Kathy Brown, Dean Fraser, Desi Jones, The Butler Brothers, AJ Brown, Karen Smith, Harold Davis, and numerous friends.

This year promises to be bigger and better. Hors d' oeuvres are included.
