International Jazz Appreciation Month Comes to Dar

Jazz Appreciation Month (JAM) is a music festival held every April in the United States, in honor of jazz as an original American art form. JAM was created by John Edward Hasse, PhD, curator of the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History.

Jazz Appreciation Month was created to be an annual event that would pay tribute to jazz as both a living and as a historic music. Schools, organizations, even governments, celebrate JAM with events ranging from free concerts to educational programs. The first year was 2001, and initial funding was provided by the Ella Fitzgerald Charitable Foundation. (Miss Fitzgerald's archives are housed at the Smithsonian).

The 1st Dar Jazz Event will feature US jazz artists Bobby Ricketts, Mo Pleasure and a host of local artists and bands. And also, in Celebration of International Jazz Appreciation Month, Dar es salaam's popular restaurant and lounge SWEET EAZY Oysterbay Presents Smooth 'n Funky-JazzMatazz with 102.6 Choice FM Sunday Jazz Presenter playing funky jazz music to groove to, and Live Performance by JOETT... singing unforgettable classics from the 40s, 50s, 60s, and 70s on Friday April 15th. The perfect after-Bobby-Ricketts-concert-after-party bash!
