To me every day is Jazz Day, but according to the UNESCO, The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, April 30 is International Jazz Day. Being a few days late and many dollars short, I still think that we can learn about our history and celebrate the day.
The official celebration was in Paris this year, complete with Herbie Hancock and many other greats, but if like me, you missed it, the article includes a list of places to go to get the groove. Of the six, one is here in Chicago, and may I say that I am not surprised.
Check out the article from Smithsonian.com here.
