International Jazz Day

International Jazz Day, May holiday.

Date When Celebrated: Always on Saturday of Memorial Day weekend.

International Jazz Day celebrates Jazz music and history, as well as Jazz musicians. Jazz music was born in America in the 1800's. Over the years, it has become popular around the world. Everyone has their favorite style of music, and many say Jazz is tops. Some people have a type of music that they do not like.  But everyone likes and/or loves Jazz. 

The birthplace and home of Jazz music is New Orleans, La. Until you visit New Orleans and attend a real Jazz show in an authentic setting, you can't fully appreciate the culture and beauty of this great style of music.

Enjoy International Jazz Day by sitting back and listening to your favorite Jazz tunes. Preferably, listen to them today as they are being played by a live jazz band


Today's Quote: " I urge all young people to go for their dreams. If they do, many of the world's problems will be solved." - - Michael Jackson
