Welcome to Philadelphia Jazz Project




Jazz Appreciation Month - April 2022

Spring

In our culture, Spring symbolizes resurrection. The awakening from Winter's death into new birth, new spirit, new possibilities. We are truly in need of what Spring offers. The past two years have been a trying experience for all of us. The pandemic has halted and then, altered, our social lives in such devastating ways. The need and desire to be in each others company is fundamental to our physical and psychological health. With the arrival of Spring 2022, it appears as if we can move with careful, determination toward some kind of normalcy. As a result, during April 2022 - Jazz Appreciation Month, Philadelphia Jazz Project in collaboration with our partners have some amazing events on the horizon that you should be aware of.

Philly Jazz Quotes

The stuff McCoy Tyner did was earth-shattering for me. The modal thing, the way he voiced chords in fourths, the way he used the pentatonic scale -- all those things were very new.
Kenny Barron
