The first jazz festival that ever took place in Hong Kong back in 1987 was imported from Japan, as sponsored by the tobacco company Mild Seven - SELECT Live Under The Sky, Hong Kong. This series originated from Japan in the early 80’s till 1992 when Japan slipped into an economic downturn. The Festival had a 5 years’ life span in Hong Kong and was a fashionable event among the celebrities and movie stars at that time. Besides captivating 2-3,000 audience every year at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium, it had great impact on local musicians.

In 1994, the ‘Hong Kong International Jazz And Blues Festival’ sprang out with a 2 days’ event in Hong Kong, as presented and organized by the then Hong Kong Jazz Club. Owing to commercial failure and lack of sponsors, the festival became a one–off event.

After 2000, The FCC (Foreign Correspondence Club) had run a jazz festival at their premises on and off for some years, and the restaurant Grappa in Central also had their small-scale festival once or twice featuring mainly local artists.
