The San Joaquin Valley Jazz Festival was founded in 1989 by Paul Shaghoian. After being held at the D&D Ranch in Madera, CA, it was moved to San Joaquin Memorial High School, and finally to Buchanan High School in 1992. During the festival’s 23 years in existence the central valley has seen some of the nation’s top musicians and jazz educators during its numerous two-day runs in February. Such notables have included educators, Larry Sutherland, Gene Aitken, Neil Slater, George Stone, Aaron Lington and James Miley, to name a few.

The performance line-ups have been a virtual "who’s who" of jazz performers throughout the state and nation and have included Bobby Shew, Frank Mantooth, Jim Snidero, Glenn Kostur, Jeff Uusitalo, Carl Saunders, Gary Hobbs, Dave Riekenburg, John Gove, Lanny Morgan, Tim Ries, Michael Davis, Brian Lynch, Peter Epstein, Terell Stafford, David Binney, Kneebody and the John Hollenbeck Large Ensemble.
