PLAYLIST FOR “CELEBRATING INTERNATIONAL JAZZ DAY 2019” (4.27.19)

28 Apr

Okay, I know I was celebrating International Jazz Day a little early. But I was eager to feature a few of the singers from around the world who are fighting the good fight to keep jazz alive, thriving, and swinging. I also asked some of my favorites to  record messages introducing a song or singer important and influential to them. Not surprisingly, these wonderful singers all chose American singers as their gold standard. If only that were true here in the country where jazz was born.
