jamvertical_v3

What is Jazz Appreciation Month?

Jazz Appreciation Month (fondly known as “JAM”) was created  at the Smithsonian Museum in 2002 to herald and celebrate the extraordinary heritage and history of jazz for the entire month of April.

JAM is intended to stimulate and encourage people of all ages to participate in jazz – to study the music, attend concerts, listen to jazz on radio and recordings, read books about jazz, and more.

Question: As a jazz fan what can I do this month and all year to celebrate and spread the word about jazz?

Here are some suggestions:

  • Attend a jazz concert at a local concert hall, performing arts organization, church, school, college, or jazz society
  • Follow your favorite musicians or groups on social media
  • Seek out new jazz music, musicians, and albums
  • Share your favorite music, musicians, or new finds with friends and peers
  • Read a biography about one of your favorite jazz musicians, jazz poetry, or other jazz book – fiction or nonfiction
  • Tune into a local jazz radio station or online radio station or playlist
  • Make a pilgrimage to your favorite jazz city, jazz museum, or to a musician’s birthplace or grave site
  • Watch a jazz documentary, film, or performance
  • Subscribe to a jazz magazine or other publication online or in print
  • Join your local Jazz Society
  • Host jazz listening sessions
  • Hold a jazz-themed party in honor of a favorite musician, or to celebrate jazz in general

New Collection of 12,000 Photographs Chronicles the American Jazz Scene

jazzduncan3.jpg__1072x0_q85_upscale

A donation from the family of photographer and historian Duncan Schiedt captures the music’s “essence”

Photographer Duncan Schiedt shot exclusively in black and white. He wanted to capture the gradients of feeling that jazz evokes, or what he saw as the music’s “essence.” Schiedt once said, “Jazz is a black and white music. Its range, from blinding brilliances to deepest shadings, seems to demand the drama that black and white can so easily provoke.

Schiedt’s family recently donated a body of the photographer’s work to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, some 26-to-30 cubic feet of material that includes more than 12,000 images, both Schiedt’s own images as well as historical photos that the photographer collected. The collection, says the museum’s John Edward Hasse is “one of the largest photo archives in jazz history.”
