What is Jazz April 2015? It’s a shorthand way to say “April is Jazz Month” and to tie together the Smithsonian’s annual celebration of Jazz Appreciation Month in April and International Jazz Day on April 30. The Jazz Journalists Association began its JazzApril project in 2012 to celebrate and promote both JAM and IJD. Benedetto Guitars applauds their efforts, and we encourage you to visit their website to see how you can help further their goal to:
raise the profile of jazz in the media, especially local media
reach out to people who aren’t already part of the jazz audience and share the music and its history
strengthen local, national and international jazz NETWORKS
give some props to the people who keep jazz alive locally via the JJA’s Jazz Hero awards.
