Jazz Month

It's April. Jazz Appreciation Month. There are all kinds of things happening this month by many of the city's organizations and groups. Philadelphia Jazz Project thought that the call to just appreciate Jazz falls a little short. We'd love for Philadelphians to show some love.

  • You can start by checking out our Local Jazz page.
  • You can visit Jazz Near You.
  • You can go out and see some live Jazz music.
  • You can go out and purchase some Jazz music, CDs, or MP3s.
  • And by all means, bring family, a friend or a colleague out with you.

To do our part, we're presenting four events this month.

Listening Party #2 takes place on Friday, April 12th at 6:30pm at the Performance Garage, 1515 Brandywine Street. Hosted by WRTI's J.Michael Harrison and featuring great, new CDs by Philadelphia's finest Jazz musicians, that we bet you probably haven't heard. Good music. Refreshments. Great crowd. FREE ADMISSION. You don't wanna miss this!

 

Then, on Friday, April 19th at 7:30pm, we present the first of 4 concerts at the Clef Club. We present vocalist, TC III & company featuring special guest, saxophonist, James Spaulding. The opening act for the evening is trumpeter, Daud El Bakara and his ensemble.

Philly Jazz Quotes

Jazz is a phenomenon. …it's an element that was created that almost lacks definition. Because it's endless.
