PLAYLIST FOR “CELEBRATING INTERNATIONAL JAZZ DAY” ( 4.25.15) #jazz #jazzvocals #jazzradio

28 Apr

This week we got a little ahead of the calendar and celebrated International Jazz Day, which is actually April 30th. So I outsourced all of the singers to those many, many countries around the world that love and respect jazz more than America does, even though it’s the country where jazz was invented. Sigh…
