As I laid in bed last night, just after midnight, I realized how historic, fun, and impactful the day had been. As a jazz fan and professional in the music business you experience some special moments, an epic show, the big recording deal, landing a big name client, but few events rival 185 countries setting aside differences, joining forces and celebrating together like the events of yesterday! Jazz did that, that’s right JAZZ!
Note: There was an event held in all 50 states in the US!
700+ events around the world, plus an incredible concert in Paris of some of Jazz’s finest, took people away from their problems, issues, and conflicts for a moment and transported them to a place of peace, joy, and musical bliss…happy,happy, happy 🙂
Only music has the ability to do this, it overcomes cultural and language barriers, socioeconomic differences and allow people to come together in harmony like nothing else and jazz is leading the way.
We have put together a slide show of some of the event posters and people involved in the events of yesterday as well as a link to watch the incredible concert that took place in Paris.
As you go about your day, remember when you have those moments of “I need to get away” grab your CD, Laptop/tablet, or smartphone and let music, especially Jazz, transport you to a faraway land, be your time machine and take you back to a special moment, let it soothe, move,and refresh you. Let it rekindle and invigorate your passion, and most of all most of all let it encourage you to share your love for music, jazz in particular, with others.
To borrow a saying from someone very special to me…Stay Jazzy!
