Happy International Jazz Day
In 2011, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization declared 30 April as “International Jazz Day,” celebrating the political, cultural, musical and artistic influence of the genre. “Jazz empresses the power of music to build peace and bring together people of all cultures and backgrounds!”
International jazz day is celebrated around the world on April 30 with concerts and educational events. See the activities listed on the jazzday.com web site
Colorado is blessed with a rich resource of very fine jazz players and bands.
Go out and treat yourself to some jazz this week!
