about us

Sam First, the venue, is Los Angeles’ leading jazz club for world-class modern, eclectic and straight-ahead jazz in an intimate setting, and all within walking distance of Los Angeles International Airport. There are two sets nightly, Tuesday through Saturday, at 7:30pm and 9:00pm.


Sam First Records (SFR), the label, is a new home for high fidelity recordings of select live performances at Sam First. These shows are by artists whose music embodies the grounded and progressive musicality as well as the vibe and spirit of jazz and Sam First.


Sam First, the man, was an old-world tailor who led his family out of the wilderness (and even better, to Los Angeles!), and whose smile warmed his grandson’s heart.


Sam First, the bar, features friendly service, crafted cocktails, local beers and wines, and first class lounge-of-your-dreams styling.
