Jazz Appreciation Month

Jazz Appreciation Month was created in 2002 at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History to herald and celebrate the extraordinary heritage and history of jazz. Through local and national jazz fans everywhere, JAM is intended to stimulate the current jazz scene and encourage people of all ages to participate in jazz - to study the music, attend concerts, listen to jazz on radio and recordings, read books about jazz, and support institutional jazz programs. 

 Join us in celebrating JAM this April. Each weekday evening Eric Cohen will feature a JAM theme or artist to focus our appreciation of Jazz. Here's his list:
