Jazz Appreciation Month

Jazz April

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, and even governments celebrate with events ranging from free concerts to educational programs. Its first year was 2001, with initial funding provided by the Ella Fitzgerald Charitable Foundation.(Miss Fitzgerald's archives are housed at the Smithsonian.)
