A perceptive writer noted that "jazz events have become de rigueur throughout the world of international tourism, and the jazz festival concept has blossomed into big business. Though billed as jazz festivals, the majority of these events in the Caribbean have taken to packing their schedules with everything from pop to R&B in order to attract younger, broader audiences." In sharp contrast, Production One Ltd. has been successfully producing its flagship event, Jazz Artists On The Greens, annually since 2003 with an ear tuned to traditional jazz and its Caribbean variation.

Jazz FansEncouraged by the growing interest shown by long starved jazz fans at small events such as "Jazz on the Avenue", (a Caribbean Jazz recital event created and produced fortnightly in early 2003 by its associate company, S.T. Jazz, Inc.), Production One Ltd. prepared for its inaugural event, Jazz Artists on The Greens, that would be hosted in June 2003 within a larger, festival setting at a park. Leaning towards the Caribbean Jazz idiom for inspiration, and with the intention of bringing a touch of class to local jazz, the objective was to expose as many new patrons and young musicians as possible to Jazz, in an informal setting that could help remove much of the mystique that seemed to surround the genre. To quote Production One Ltd. director, Rolf Doyle, "Jazz Artists On The Greens is a first step towards a local jazz festival similar in popularity and size to those held annually in St. Lucia and Barbados, but always remaining true to the jazz." The event has grown from strength to strength, ever widening its base of regional performers...and its audience.
