Jazz Live concerts were launched at the Catamaran Hotel in the 1970’s. Some legendary names that were a part of this series back then included Buddy Collette, Duke Pearson (with his Big Band), Blue Mitchell, Joe Marillo, Stan Getz, Harold Land and Art Pepper. Our recent Jazz Live performances included names like Peter Erskine, Alan Broadbent, Tierney Sutton and Bobby Shew, to name a few. Here are some great photos of the recent Jazz Live performances courtesy of Larry Redman's Flickr page.


The City College Lyman Saville Theatre faces C Street between 14th and 15th Streets. The City College Trolley Station is located at 12th (Park Blvd.) and C Street. Freeways 5, 163, and 94 all exit within blocks of the theatre.

For those coming for the first time, if you input ‘1343 C Street, San Diego , CA 92101’ into your map App, that address will get you to the parking Lot for the Saville Theatre (Parking Lot 8). There are parking options in Lot 3 (off 16th Street) and plenty of on-street parking.


There are two lots to choose from aside from street parking. Parking Lots 8 and 3. See the map below. If parking in any lot on campus be sure to print a Jazz Live Parking Permit.

Parking Permit is now required.
