The Jazz stand is a professional quality music stand with a full range of height adjustment and industry standard stability as well as a full size music tray with pencil shelf. And yet as a result of its unique design it unfolds in three easy moves from a flat pack no larger than the size of the tray. It does this with no knobs no finger traps and no hassle; just three easy moves. When unfolded the Jazz stand is adjusted by raising or lowering it to the desired height and leaving it there. Its friction joints ensure that it stays at the right height. The tray has an additional shelf for pencils and small instruments. Friction locks automatically hold the tray at whatever angle you set. There are no knobs to fiddle with or lose and it will never go slack.
